I switched to xine, which is
- much nicer to DVD unit, it only flashes activity from time to time,
  just like PowerDVD on Windows do, mplayer was reading all the time
- can do menus really well
- have actually usable GUI, which, if nothing, allows you to switch
  audio/subtitle stream or deinterlacing on the fly

Mplayer sucks, folks, really hard.

I still love him. ;)

BTW Damian, I'm getting bounces when I mail you directly, something
about timeouts, you may want to re-check your mail setup.
