| I found mplayer does seem to be so slow with full size PAL that I will

It's got some odd syncing code in it that basically sleeps for 1 second
waiting for frames. I remember altering this code at some point to remove
the video syncing for frames and it worked great for full-screen PAL.

I hacked up a pretty bad vesa driver for it too, so it would work on the
console. At some point I had a VIDIX compat card and vidix worked with it as
well. Even w/o VIDIX if you remove the sync code the TV viewing is smooth at
full-resolution PAL.
