My observations are the same: xine needs a lot more CPU to play hd content.
Nevertheless I fried your ffmpeg paramters and beside the need to patch fourcc
for me, it is not better. Even worse: I suggest using xvid, as picture quality
is worse with ffmpeg's codec for me.

Interesting that your athlon64 has so much more horses than my miserable xp -
even though my XP should have a higher clock rate than your cpu. :-( Or are
you hw accelerating your output? Ie I only have a geforce4 ti4200 which cannot
do idct and even gets slower when doing mc.

Are using a 32 bit or 64 bit os?
