Your screen resolution won't affect the performance with xshm & software 
scaling.  Scaling is scaling, more or less.  If the video is 720x480, 
then unless your screen is also running at 720x480, it has to scale.  
Doesn't matter too much how much it has to scale; just that it has to 
do it at all.  You certainly have the horsepower to do xshm output, I 
think, but if you can get xv/xvmc/opengl/sdl working, then I think 
you'll be better off.
