Firefox 4 in Slackware 12.2 and HTML5 video problem

I try FF4 on Slackware 12.2 machine and I have problem with HTML5 video. If the video source is defined as theora vorbis(.ogv), the sound is good but the video is very bad. I have no problem with FF 3.6.15.

Does anybody know where is a problem?

Thanks for your help.

The problem was in color depth of xorg. I switched from 16 to 24 and FF4 works fine.
