That seems likely. I run Xine on a PII/667 with good results, but I have
an ATI All-In-Wonder128 32M AGP card, using the Gatos "ati.2" driver.

IIRC, VideoLAN can use several different display methods depending on the
capabilities it can discern from the X config; on my MDK 8.1 system (which
has no DVD, and Cirrus Logic video), it uses SDL for the video display.
