Yes, it is.
This normally indicates that your system ist too slow for replaying videos.
It can be a misconfiguring of the used software, or too many task running 
simultaneously or thelike.
I'm using vdr-xine for displaying and don't know about xineliboutput, so maybe 
someone else can give you hints how to optimize it.

Maybe it helps: I noticed a higher cpu-usage when replaying with vdr via 
vdr-xine as if replaying the files with xine directly. This was improved with 
newer versions of vdr-xine - now I use a faster CPU, so it doesn't matter 

I hope my answer helps you.
