did you try different video-out drivers?
In gxine you can set them in:
file - configure - preferences - advanced - video.

I can play a 1024x768 avi without problems in fullscreen-mode with sis 650 on a 1 Ghz Intel celeron.
Gxine uses automatic driver, in mplayer I use "xv".

Great! Blue was kicked out. Now is perfect black.
driver xv;
device.xv_autopaint_colorkey checked;
device.xv_colorkey to black;

Now only one "small" problem. Video output doesn't want to resize to full screen. output.disable_scaling is unchecked.

gxine was known to have problems with fullscreen in the past, though I think this was fixed meanwhile.
It would however be a good idea to try mplayer, too.
Maybe that works also fullscreen with your card.

I have good results with the vlc player.
Rich function set.
It can be found in the Puppy Software Installer (P.S.I.
Just search for vlc.

I'm using xine. I should prepare my own skin for it. Is this possible in VLC?
