It's just plain bad for now - even the MMX 'optimised'
programs I've seen aren't up to the standards of many
win32-based programs. Lobbying for Xing or PowerDVD,
anyone? I saw the price on PowerDVD was a mere £18,
which is just a symbolic amount!
Sound plays nice on xmovie, though.

I get 8fps in proper size on xmovie.
But then again, I *do* have a Dxr2, which looks very
good in Linux when I use the test program from the
opensourced drivers :)
