I think it also depends on the codec and CPU speed, but there's really only one player that comes to mind: MPlayer
It accepts certain options (e.g. "-hardframedrop") to make playback a little smoother on slow systems. Hope that helps.

MPlayer works fine for P2

MPlayer works fine for a Pentium2_64mb with Linux
only needed to install "lame-3.95.1.tar.gz"
because System asked for ""
"mplayer" installs to /usr/bin

ps im using Slackware 10.2 fluxbox or xfce4
