Yes, it is.
This normally indicates that your system ist too slow for replaying videos.
It can be a misconfiguring of the used software, or too many task running
simultaneously or thelike.
I'm using vdr-xine for displaying and don't know about xineliboutput, so
someone else can give you hints how to optimize it.
I have no problem replaying with vdr-xine, and am playing with xvmc hardware
(VIA Unichrome) acceleration.
The PC is a AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2800+ with 1 Gig of memory
Maybe it helps: I noticed a higher cpu-usage when replaying with vdr via
vdr-xine as if replaying the files with xine directly. This was improved
newer versions of vdr-xine - now I use a faster CPU, so it doesn't matter
When running vdr-xine, my CPU is about 12-16%.
Does this sound right? No probs with vdr-xine, but cpu problems with
