Hello,

I have noticed that when a video playback is stopped and a new video is played, the last frame of the video appears on the screen (on panasonic BD35) momentarily before the new video is presented. (Since the last frame may not be an I frame, it shows up as color patches.)

Is there a way to clear video frame buffer to prevent this from happening? Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Vinay Agarwal

The player.deallocate() and subsequent creation seems to be (seconds) slower than changing the playlist using the playlist control. Is there another way to clear the video buffer?

Try player.deallocate().
