I'm working through these issues as well. My AMD64 3800 shows very
little CPU usage watching ripped DVDs (maybe this isn't a useful
datapoint also, I don't know if my xine uses xvmc or not). However,
playing HD (without xine) pushes the cpu to 98+% and playback is
lerchy. Enabling "extra audio buffering" has the cpu still pegged,
but seems to make the playback smooth.
