It's a question of the %s in the output. The first number is the
CPU-time needed to decode. If your computer is too slow to decode
in real-time (value >100%) then no downsampling will help. You can
also try mplayer -nosound -vo null to see just decode percentage.
The DivX-codec does not support spacial scalability, i.e. to produce
a smaller picture himself.
Only if the CPU is fast enough, but the video output is too slow (old
graphics card or no accelerated output) then downsampling may help.
Easiest would be dropping every second line or every second frame.
Dropping individual pixels is slower.
