Does anyone have some experience with the ATI Radeon Mobility M6 and
I have such a chip in my notebook and the performance seems pretty bad. When
I use -vo x11 it's pretty normal with about 20-30% CPU load (1,6GHz P4) when
playing DVD or large MPEG or DivX movies. But this is without scaling.

For fullscreen playback I tried -vo xv or -vo gl. But xv is horrible slow,
much skipping and constant 100% CPU utilisation. gl is a bit better and does
at least not skip in scenes without much movement but it's still to much to
enjoy a video.

I tried everything I found in the docs or in Google.
I'm using SuSE 8.2 with XFree86 4.3. I tried the standard X driver and Gatos
drivers without any difference. MTRR are okay as in the mplayer docs. DMA is
on and xvinfo tells me that it supports everything that's needed. DRI is
working and performance in 3D games is as it should be.

Why is video so slow on this notebook and how could i improve it?
