Hello, all ...

I'm noticing that the latest VLC code from CVS, when built on Mac OSX 
and playing a VOB from the "Nightmare Before Christmas" DVD (one of my 
personal favorites), uses 80-90% of the CPU, or more.  This is on a 
900mhz iBook, 640M RAM, OSX 10.2.6.  Even curiouser to me -- when VLC 
is just serving the same VOB (not playing it) it still uses 20-30%.  
This seems a bit weird ... shouldn't it be basically just reading / 
doing a teeny bit of processing / sending in this case?
