You don't really need SDL. Better use the DirectX plugins instead.

You likely didn't compile the directx plugins (and I'm sure you didn't compile the SDL plugins either - adding the SDL dll is not enough for this) so vlc is using the GDI video output which has a really really bad performance.

>I have tried 0.5.3 and 0.5.2.Invariabely,the problems occurs.

Download and install the directx headers and make sure they are detected properly by your vlc's ./configure script.
