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
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).
