mencoder/mplayer slower on freebsd 6.0-amd64

   I don't know if this is related, but I noticed that, when I run "mkxvcd"
under amd64, it takes longer time to finish a movie conversion. I didn't do
a side-by-side comparison between amd64 and i386 system, but usually a job
will take less than an hour to finish on i386 would take more than that
(usually like 2 hours) on the amd64.
   mkxvcd calls up mplayer/mencoder to do the conversion, while running the
command, it prompted:
mplayer: could not connect to socket
mplayer: Socket operation on non-socket
is this the problem?
