The ffmpeg and mplayer packages I provided were based on the packages
from Christian Marillat (debian-multimedia.org). I sent all the
necessary modifications back to him. I no longer build the packages
myself - Christian autobuilds these now like on the other architectures.
The ffmpeg binaries and libavcodec libs on debian-multimedia.org are (or
at least were the last time I looked at) altivec optimized . Building
kino against it should give reasonable performance. Holger, could you
try that as a first step? Once we have that we need two versions of
ffmeg (altivec optimized and not and select the correct one during
runtime) - probably using glibc capabilities like openssl does for i386.
 we have a not altivec optimized ffmpeg in the mplayer-powerpc
package, the mplayer-g4 package uses the altivec optmized shared lib.
