Now _that_ should definitely be part of DOCS. Let's call it DOCS/SLOWMACHINES
(not spaces, so nobody will get confused ;-)  There should be a reference from
the (outdated) DOCS/SPEED file and DOCS/MPlayer-FAQ perhaps, too.

Users of slow machines (e.g. below 500MHz, or below 600?), please send me

1) your speed results (e.g. which resolution/codecs are visible, framedrop etc.)
2) hard- and software config setting
3) tips and tricks
4) whatever comes to mind

I will try to create a small file of tips and tricks.
