Okay I got this page out of my Xorg.log and it suggests to fix some of my video overlay problems to switch to the Video Blitter. However it does not explain how except for a small sentence: " To give you more control over what method to use I added the option XvDefaultXvAdaptor. It takes a string argument which is either "Overlay" or "Blitter". The "default" adaptor will be adaptor number 0 and hence being used by Xine/MPlayer." This is the page: http://www.winischhofer.at/linuxsispart1.shtml Any advice is very welcome. Thanks, Halsafar

I think what he means is you need to change your xorg config file. In debian this is under /etc/X11/xorg.conf, hopefully you know where in your distro.

Go to the section for your video card, it should say something like

Section "Device"
Identifier "Video Card Name"
Option "someoption" "optionvalue"
Option "someoption2" "optionvalue2"
Option "etc" "etc"
EndSection


add an option line like so

Option "XvDefaultXvAdaptor" "Blitter"

Make sure it's before the "EndSection" in the section for your video card's config. Also, you'll need to restart X.

I hope this made sense, and I hope I didn't misinterpret the instructions he gave on the site. Good luck!

Thanks a bunch.
I know exactly where you are talking about.

Option "XvDefaultXvAdaptor" "Blitter"

That is what I really needed to see.

Thanks,
Halsafar
