The Media Player Classic idea looks kind of interesting. I guess it's coded to look like WMP, but it's open-source, and it can play anything? Hehe. I might have to give it a try sometime.

A few days ago, I would have agreed with you that the subs are the problem. But, as I mentioned in a post above, I have managed to reduce the CPU use a little, and now my CPU-usage is affected mostly by the amount of motion in the actual movie. The subtitles don't seem to be as big a problem anymore. I tried this out also by checking out two other divx movies (they have no subtitles), and watching the CPU-meter. The CPU-usage was jumping around between 30% and 80%. It got high only when there was a lot of movement (cars going back and forth, people moving around, etc.). When somebody is just standing and talking (hardly any movement), the CPU-usage stayed around 30%.

Same thing happens also in Windows Media Player. My guess now is that maybe these codecs suck. Or maybe my CPU sucks :).
