No matter which player I use, whenever I play .vob (MPEG-2) video files (small ones I have on my computer, not from a DVD) I get some strange horizontal lines.
(a sample image follows as an attachment)
This is a problem I've always had in Linux for this type of files.
At first I thought it could be caused by the fact that the ATI card I had was not well supported in terms of drivers, but then someone in the #mplayer IRC channel, I think, told me I just needed to put a code in the configuration file and it solved the problem in mplayer (the player I decided to use for this kind of files).
Now I have a NVIDIA card and the same thing happens. I've put a code again ("vf=lavcdeint") and it solved the problem. Until recently that is, when I started getting an error message when opening this type of videos: "Cannot prepare subtitle font".
If I disable the code I've put, the error message goes away but the lines come back.
I tried opening this kind of files with Totem and gxine and realized that the horizontal lines also appear if I use these players. So it's a problem with Linux reading this kind of files and not a problem specific to mplayer.
Does anyone know what can I do to solve it for all players?
Thank you in advance.
