Does this happens with *all* movies or just some?

Also, in Totem make sure de-interlace is turned *off* and try again (it
distort the view when using de-interlacing with material that doesn't
need it).

To turn de-interlace off in Totem:  From the "View" main menu un-check

Personally, this is all I could help with.  I use "MPlayer" as my media
player and rarely use "Totem", "Xine", or "VLC" (I don't even know what
"xfmedia" is!).

Sorry.  Maybe someone else in this list with more experience in
Totem/Xine can help.
