So I hope you agree MPlayer has a hard job to de-interlace (=double the frame-rate) of your 30Hz input material. This also makes testing the newer, slightly better performing version pointless.
If you really think that "half-rate" is the answer, please try to convince me it is: I am on 85Hz, and some things are just difficult to understand...
I will try this when I get a chance, compiling mplayer from source is not just something I can do on a whim
Hmm (EDIT: Building MPlayer is apparently currently broken, but that should be fixed in the next 36 hours - patch welcome!)
  • svn co svn:// mplayer
  • cd mplayer
  • ./configure
  • make
(I never install)

You will probably want a few library headers, but note 1) except for xv-devel they are probably all useless and 2) even that should not take too long (and I believe there is an incantation to just install all the headers MPlayer likes).
