Hi Rolf,

Thank you for your response.

I've experienced extremely choppy play on my MacBook Pro (using  
VMWare) using beta 8. However, I'm testing it now on my Mac Pro (again  
using VMWare) and it seems to work correctly. I will try to reproduce  
it later this day, I don't have access to my MBP at the moment. One  
thing I do notice is that the upscaling in Moonlight for full screen  
video seems to work differently than the scaling in Silverlight while  
playing content, see (be sure to watch them at 100%):


I'm also having issues scrubbing to a different timestamp in the  
video, in Moonlight it does not always jump to the correct spot. After  
you scrub it may play for a few seconds and then after some time it  
will jump to the correct spot.
I've uploaded the debug output at:


Also, when I scrub I do not see the "Buffering" indicator that I would  
normally see when using the Silverlight plug-in.

Sorry about that. At the moment it is supposed to be viewable outside  
the Netherlands, but not all content may be available. It is however  
the same player as on the previous URL.
