For what it’s worth, I did not have to purchase an mpeg license to get good performance. I didn’t even know such a process existed.

I think your first two suspicions are sound. It’s the speed of the SD card or the Speed of the Model 1 hardware, I’d bet.

Do you know if your SD card is class 10 or 6 or less?

I wonder what you’d see if you replaced that m2v with a heavily downsampled version of the same video.

If it turns out to be the hardware, herbfargus’ early link in this thread may be the answer: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=57721 but that would require code rewrites.

I’m at work, but brought a B with me and a 2. I’m going to do a new image on a class 10 on the B as time permits and see what happens.

I’m more inclined to think it’s going to be the hardware on the B just isn’t up to the task of running the emulator without hardware decoding, but I’m willing to test it out.

I’ll post back once I’ve got this B up and running.
