If sdl is fastest your system is seriously broken.
On a system with decent drivers xv will be faster.
I don't think there are many if any ARM systems where that count as such.
On A10 or A20 based systems you'd at least get a hackish VDPAU instead.
I would assume that the PandaBoard is basically the same crap as the BeagleBoard though.
For those the only solution is to manually configure the secondary framebuffer for YUV and overlay mode and have MPlayer draw into it.
That works, but is only suitable for fixed setups and not for normal desktop use (also because downscaling is not supported).
The proper solution is probably to implement XVideo based on the secondary framebuffer, but I doubt it will happen if nobody did that yet...
