I'll have to check it out then.  Does anyone know off-hand if the Star Wars:
The Phantom Menace menus work right in Xine (i.e. it has three menu themes
that it randomly chooses each time you play it - right now Ogle only wants
to play the first one.)?

Also, how's Xine's video quality?  Does it support deinterlacing?  I was
watching some Fawlty Towers on the weekend and the interlaced video started
to get annoying after a while - but not quite annoying enough to make be
reboot to "that other OS" to watch it.  ;)
