Broken sword 2.5 Video speed

Hi, unfortunately on a Raspberry Pi 3 the video playback speed of Broken Sword 2.5 is way too slow here.

Not sure why, I already tried some scaler, size or OpenGL-settings but without success.

There are a few tickets already about issues with video for the game.

Do you also get the freeze issue on video playback?
Is video framerate slow but audio plays at normal speed resulting in desynch?

Here's the most relevant info I have about the potential cause for this (from sev, via ScummVM Discord):

the primarily problem of that behaviour of BS2.5 is very hard to fix
the whole game engine is a Lua interpreter, thus, the main rendering loop is in Lua (...) setting up z coordinate of the menu below the game screen or video screen, so it is always rendered at 800x600 32-bit with transparency

Hi, I`ve not recognized a freeze, audio seems to be ok, too as far as I can tell...its just the video playing very slow somehow

We can not do anything with it. Theora video playback is very resource-demanding.
