In fact I just want to watch full screen movies, and very fluid movies (Yes, 
the best we could have...).
When I'm watching them with low resolution (just a part of my screen), it's 
ok. When I'm watching them with full-screen, the movie is less fluid.

Is there issues to solve this problem ?

For example, we could use more memory (for mplayer buffer). But I don't know 
if it's even possible, and if mplayer can be optimize with buffer size and 
things like that... It's just what I want to do.
