Default Re: What card for 1080P60 with XvMC

I can't get this working.
Currently I use the newest NVIDIA driver (8762) and I just downloaded the newest mplayer version (pre8).
I configured it like this:
./configure --enable-gui --enable-largefiles --enable-linux-devfs --enable-menu --enable-gl --enable-xvmc

It links with the XvMCNVIDIA library. And with a whole lot of other libs:
ldd /usr/local/bin/mplayer => (0xffffe000) => /usr/lib/ (0x40033000) => /usr/lib/ (0x4004a000) => /usr/local/lib/ (0x40072000) => /usr/local/lib/ (0x400b7000) => /usr/lib/ (0x40166000) => /lib/ (0x40194000) => /usr/lib/ (0x401a5000) => /usr/lib/ (0x401c5000) => /lib/ (0x40271000) => /lib/tls/ (0x40275000) => /usr/lib/ (0x40287000) => /lib/ (0x402f6000) => /usr/lib/ (0x4033b000) => /usr/lib/ (0x4034d000) => /lib/ (0x40355000) => /usr/lib/ (0x4036b000) => /opt/gnome/lib/ (0x40395000) => /opt/gnome/lib/ (0x4065b000) => /opt/gnome/lib/ (0x406ca000) => /opt/gnome/lib/ (0x406e6000) => /lib/tls/ (0x406fb000) => /opt/gnome/lib/ (0x4071e000) => /opt/gnome/lib/ (0x40723000) => /opt/gnome/lib/ (0x4072e000) => /opt/gnome/lib/ (0x40762000) => /opt/gnome/lib/ (0x4079d000) => /opt/gnome/lib/ (0x407a1000) => /usr/lib/ (0x40820000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x408a5000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x408b3000) => /usr/lib/ (0x409af000) => /opt/kde3/lib/ (0x409f1000) => /opt/gnome/lib/ (0x409f7000) => /usr/lib/ (0x409fb000) => /lib/tls/ (0x40a00000)
/lib/ => /lib/ (0x40000000) => /lib/ (0x40b16000) => /usr/lib/ (0x40b1b000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x40b3a000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x40b3e000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x40b46000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x40b59000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x40b62000) => /opt/gnome/lib/ (0x40b6b000) => /usr/lib/ (0x40b90000) => /usr/lib/tls/ (0x41352000)

I have a 6600GT card that otherwise works fine.
It plays SD video fine with XvMC. But when I play HD material (1080i) found in newsgroups, it looks like a slideshow. Every few seconds a new picture. Sound is OK. And a comment from mplayer:

**** Your system is too SLOW to play this! ****

However, when I let it decode by the built-in software decoder, the same material can be played with only an occasional framedrop.

What can be wrong here?
