I get the "your machine is too slow" message often from MPlayer, but I 
ignore it. The bottom line is whether the movie plays smoothly and how 
much of the CPU time it uses in doing so. If the movie plays OK, ignore 
any messages from MPlayer, espcecially if there is unused CPU time (you 
can check by running a utility like "top."

You said you can see the movie "well," so you probably don't have a 
problem. Just close the dialog (if MPlayer was started with the GUI) and 
keep watching the movie.

Finally, don't apologize for your English; it's fine. I'm sure I 
wouldn't be able to post as well en Español, and that's the only other 
language I know.
