Hmm, I assume you're using -framedrop and your movies are 320x240 or
so. AFAIK P166 doesnt even have MMX, which is almost necessary for
DCT-based codecs (MPEG*) to be fast. And then there's the fact that
the PCI bus is too slow for high-res video, especially in RGB space
where you can't transfer downsampled U/V planes. My K6-2/450 is even
slightly too slow to play dvds without -framedrop, so I really doubt
there's any way you could play them on P100...
