For iso video files ripped by Myth, xine CPU use hovers around 65%.  For
mpeg files it hits a steady 102%.  Only with computers (and salesmen)
would you find something over the hundred percent I guess ;-)

Since I've never ran benchmarks on that I don't know if these cpu
usages are OK or not.

Are the TV settings 'Standard, libmpeg, xvmc' important in this case ?
It seems the images are flowing smoother with Standard or xvmc.

I tried -V xmvc (in conjunction with the TV setting) but that did not
seem to change much.
