Actually, the Windows VP3 QuickTime codec runs just fine on a 400MHz Pentium II box, with only occasional glitches on some dodgy Celeron systems.  At work, we routinely test 320x240 full-color, full-motion video on low-end boxes.  At 300MHz, VP3 displays some glitches; at higher speeds, most systems are generally fine.  (The VP3 QuickTime codec uses the native assembly code supplied with VP3, not the much slower C code.)

Please do not assume anything about the performance of VP3 from the performance of Mauricio's sample code.  Such assumptions would be wildly inaccurate, for reasons Mauricio has already explained.
