bluedan is an unknown quantity at this point

I'm sorry to say so, but your hardware/CPU is to slow. Both of you!
At least, assuming a usual MPEG4 video resolution -I'm sure it's DivX or XVid in your case- of let's say 640x480 played at full screen size, it takes a PIII with 400MHz to play back smoothly.
All MPEG4 decoding is done by the CPU and thus consumes much power.
Doing YUY2 -> RBG conversion on top of that is a killer as well as turning off overlay which puts a lot load off the CPU, when switched on.
Even on my PIII@667MHz without overlay I'd have an unwatchable movie!!

Contact your Aunty Kathie to collect some money for new hardware. :D
Keep forum organized and use the search button !! :o
