Well, upgrading will always help, but you can changing the "vo" device used. If you are using mplayer, then you can try:

mplayer -vo xv foo.avi

Do "mplayer -vo help" for more details.

Which graphics card are you using? If you are using an nVidia or ATI card, then try installing the official drivers. (Ubuntu has apt-gettable nvidia drivers)

I've also noticed that win32 codecs are a bit slow, and may give problems.
