Well, we haven't set specific performance goals for this stage of the
project, but I will at least take a look into these issues you mention:
audio and video playback framerate.

BTW, I have patches for the icon size and a workaround for the aspect
ratio. I'm also patching genivi-dev-platform to avoid any manual
configuration, and will get in touch soon about getting this work
reviewed/merged. What do you prefer, PRs or patches sent to meta-ivi
mailing list?

Thanks for you thorough testing!
