Yeah, I was so disappointed with the video performance, and I didn't
want to take any more time researching the issue.  I installed knoppMyth
(my old trusted standby) and it addressed everything:

MythDora (open source nVidia drivers -- learned the hard way):
    choppy video playback.  CPU at 70%-80%

KnoppMyth (nVidia's closed source drivers):
    smooth and impressive video playback.  CPU at 20%-30%

I'm surprised googling "mythDora nVidia choppy playback" didn't turn up
anything useful.

P.S.  I just re-googled it, and this thread comes up!!
