Probaly a litle colorspace bug. iirc i have some colorspace fix in
my dev version. I'll try to update the cvs in the next days.
In the mean time -vf swapuv may help you.

This is because tdfx_vid use "AGP move" wich seems damn fast. And
another advantage of tdfx_vid is that you can use it in X11 with
-vo xover:tdfx_vid :)
