no HD
no xvmc
512Mb ram
VIA chipset

the pauses were less on the 1Ghz, so the system was marginally faster, but 
still paused. I cant imagine what would happen if I tried to record

What is the framrate of your captured videos?
Is this HD?
Are you using xvmc?
How much RAM do you have?
What chipset is your motherboard using?
What resolution are you outputing?

I'm sure others will have more questions... but I'm sure those are
some things people will need to know before they can help.
