102% is only with salesmen, and linux.  not PC's in general (I think). ;-)

can you try to use the xv driver for video out instead of xvmc?
mplayers usage: -vo xv
I am unsure of xine's syntax

Also in order to use the xv driver, what driver is your xorg using?  nvidia
binary driver, etc.  essentially you are trying to make the player use the
gpu processor instead of offloading everything to cpu.
