Please give us the full output, including at least one status line that
has CPU usage values.
Most likely the problem is though color space conversion, since the
most (all?) OMAP3 users end up with graphics drivers that don't work
In that case the most promising approach is using its YUV overlay
framebuffers, however so far MPlayer does not have any support at all
for YUV framebuffers.
