It would probably be worth reposting your question with a different
subject line. Something along the lines of "Image/Video processing
performance in Python", and explaining what you actually want to
achieve. "Python too slow?" doesn't give enough information - clearly
Python is fast enough for many many tasks, since it is so widely used.
It also sounds like a troll - so many people who would actually be
able to assist you (such as the PIL, pygame and numpy/scipy
communities) may have ignored this thread.
