well, as none of 3dfx cards have dvd hardware acceleration - all the job does cpu. As i can see in your sig, you're on socket7 with 550mhz k6-2, this means there are no faster cpu available.
Maybe try VLC player? (http://www.videolan.org)

have you updated your MB BIOS yet? also, how fast is the onboard video???? the SIS chipset is about as slow as they get with ANY video card installed..... you could try a K6-3 processor if you can get one cheap enough! other than that, I think a newer motherboard/CPU/RAM is in order.

sweet,
The power of the google search engine...... 30fps should be good enough for the human eye.... 24 fps is where we start to see a flicker. now if you could only do a little overclocking.......
