This is probably one of the reasons why you are seeing poor performance and/or dropped frames. You should be using xv as a video output mechanism.

You should also keep the other processes to a minimum because other things happening when you're playing videos can cause dropped frames. MacOS X is able to have other running processes because it uses hardware decoding of DVDs, while Linux is essentially limited to doing everything in software, but you're lucky enough to have an Altivec-enabled processor (which I don't).
