Another test, P4 XEON 2.8GHz, mplayer with theora mmx patches
from VP3HoSwiYO (not to be confused with encoder mmx patches).

No video rendering (I am testing remotely), mere decoding your clip
gives 26.3 fps - that is, better than PAL! :)

Yet Another Test:

"Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz"

decoding your clip: 33.1 fps     (still, decoding only)

Well, it looks promising!
