did you mean "fate" instead of "faith" ?

maybe nvidia driver issue?

well, xfmedia is pretty mature, so not much development is actually needed
except bugfixes. You should ask yourself why it broke for you and not for other
people first. Perhaps this is a xine+amd64+nvidia issue...

that really does not suggest that xfmedia is bugged, but rather xine or the
video driver (at first glance)
