If you are using mydsl extensions, xv is probably the best since it will use your hardware's video capabilities.

x11 is unaccelerated -- this means software rendering, so avoid it.

For opengl, maybe you need to configure your glide?  But again, if xv is working, stick with it.

curaga, what do you mean by playing in console?  On the framebuffer?  I don't think that would be necessarily faster though - perhaps theoretically it is.  And I guess you wouldn't be able to use any X video output plugins either..

Mplayer can play on console, without X loaded. Fb, AA, caca and vesa aren't accelerated, but vidix is.
The point in vidix on top of vesa is that Vesa is fastest in drawing (pure BIOS vesa modes) and vidix is best on accelerating graphic cards..

Nope, no X output, but only those for console/framebuffer..

There's no such thing as life. Those mean little jocks invented it ;)
