remove -DUSE_DIRECTSHOW from Makefile row 37 .. or use Makefile.No-DS (guess
why it's there:)

Sure. But next time tell us what vo driver, videocard, CPU, anything you
use. And the CPU usage percentages, properties of the DivX file, etc, etc...

I have a slow CPU (K6/2 286Mhz), but there is _no_ speed decrease with
DirectShow. What CPU do you have?
(maybe there is a postprocessing option /pp/ in your config file?)
