MPlayer is too slow in RH6.0 AMD K6 333MHz
I'm using RedHat 6.0 on a AMD-K6 333MHz PC. I was looking for a good (Versatile) Movie Player for my desktop. I was able to install and run MPlayer under linux. But It is too slow (frame dropping, double buffering both were used).
Suggestions in this regard will be highly appreciated (especially about any package in binary/source that is capable of playing most common video formats).
My Working Environment-
X11R6-18.104.22.168, SDL 2+, GL, gcc 2.95.3 (upgraded for Mplayer)
Why MTV(Mpeg TV) works and MPlayer doesn't on older systems
RAM size is 32MB and VGA RAM size is 4MB (S3 Virge chipset). That serves well (29 fps) for MTV (Mpeg TV) and gtv (smpeg based) but why not Mplayer ?
Asking too much ?
