Re: a video player for slow computers?
Players to slow a computer down as well, or some do. Windows media player is horrible for that!
I doubt you'll get much performace like you want, but using something like Media Player Classic might help. Also, MPEG1 videos, say VCD quality(352x240, 1150KBPS, etc) should run find on most computers... Dvix, and such high compression codecs would be out of the question for anything less than 300(which that would still really be pushing it...)
Desktop: Athlon 64 3700, 1024M RAM, GF 6200 TC 256M, 2x 80G, 2x DVD-RW
Laptop: Sempron 2800, 512M RAM, Unichrome, 60G, DVD-RW
Macintosh:G4 1.33GHz, 512M RAM, Radeon 9200 32M, 40G, DVD/CDRW
They get me from 0 to 1...
