I wonder if you weren't doing something wrong?  MPlayer does not output
that much that handling -v should be slow, in any language.  Python is
not a speed demon, but it can easily handle this kind of thing.

My code uses about 1% CPU to parse and handle all the status lines.
I'll certainly admit this isn't "fast" for what it does (although the
framework I use adds some non-trivial overhead as well), but it's not
prohibitively slow, and it doesn't approach the level of PITA.
