If you don't tell it otherwise, MPlayer will only use one core (see:

> mplayer dvd:// -vo sdl

SDL is a truely horrible driver.  Use ANYTHING ELSE.

-vo gl with various supporting options works well on NV cards.
-vo xv works well enough in the vast majority of cases.

And you haven't explained if the video really is unable to playback at
full-speed, or if it's just a fluke at start-up, perhaps due to the
damaged DVD.

Don't trust me! I'm wrong!
