"vids:IV32 decompressor" ?

Actually, IV32 isn't the new Intel Video Inteactive--that's IV41.
IV32 is trusty old Indeo 3.2. If you've already downloaded the
IVI stuff, you probably got Indeo 3.2 along with it. If you get
the Video for Windows Runtime from Intel, you'll get the 16-bit
Indeo 3.2 update.
That's a dangerous misassumption, especially if you're making
video that will be played back by the average consumer. Smooth
video doesn't rely on your graphics card--if you have a fairly
fast graphics card, and a fairly hot machine. With Indeo 4.1,
it's true--the bottleneck isn't usually the video card: it's the
processor; anything less than a Pentium will be disappointing.
However, with Indeo 3.2, a more CPU-friendly codec, you'll find
that CPU time isn't a problem. Take a Pentium 200 with MMX
extensions and put it in a machine with an old SpeedStar SVGA or
ATI Mach8--you're guaranteed to see a difference.
