me too.. since it is almost the same code, and most of the time should be 
spent inside the lqt_decode_video call.. strange strange.

can you find out which colourmodel (and codec) is used? the colormodel is 
reported as
pdp_qt/qt~: using colormodel x

you can find out which codec is used by playing the movie with lqtplay.
