I'll stop you right there.  The GeForce 6600 isn't a VDPAU capable card.
 Only the 8000+ series cards support it.  That being said, it means you're
running everything in software and on the CPU and it sounds like the specs
are up to playing back then content.  The easiest fix would be to drop a new
video card (they're not that expensive) in the system and enjoy.
