Let me provide you with a better 'benchmark', then.

On my (now replaced) Pentium 166, mplayer could play a VCD at about four
frames per second (depending on the speed of the action, this does
change a little bit during the playback) when all scaling has been
disabled. Xine, on the other hand, didn't even reach 1 frame per second.

Mplayer definitely outperforms anything out there. Not that it matters
here, but anyway.
