Quietseb is an unknown quantity at this point

As far as I experienced, bsplayer is the player that requires the less resources, thus using it is a good first step.

I think you should tweak around the decoder's properties, especially the postprocessing level.
Set it to 0

You may also use ffdshow filter as a decoder, I believe it a better decoder than the divx decoder itself.
It has a nice feature that allows him to set postprocessing level automatically (real time) depending on the available/needed CPU resources.
I use ffdshow + bsplayer on a 460MHz celeron and it usually works okay.
I've read some times that K6/2 are particularly bad at divx decoding though :|
