Yes, it only works with mplayer's -framedrop option. If I do not use
this parameter it's like slow motion... And watching movies w/
-framedrop is not satisfying.

I tried the "new" ivtvdev driver that comes w/ recent versions of
ivtv-1.1.10pre (I think starting with pre99m or so) and with this one
divx playback was even slower. In addition, I cannot see any performance
difference when using mplayer with "-vo xv" or with "-vo ivtvosd". The
only difference is that movies with "-vo ivtvosd" only cover the upper
two thirds of the screen. "-vo ivtv" does not show any video, only sound
