Could you explain that more detailed please?
I use ImLib because it uses XSHM and has a cache for rendered images.
This seems me to be the fastes way to display images under X (I don't know
much about X programming and may be you can enlighten me ...).
May be for the case of showing a "Film" you should switch of the
cache because it makes no sense in this case.

I depend on displaying images independ from the display. Could you
explain how cqcam handles this and what is the reason for the gain of
speed in your opinion.
