 If there is no MPEG2 license installed on the raspberry pi and you have
 the "OpenMAX Normal" profile selected, the player falls back to ffmpeg.
 With the current settings the playback becomes jerky.

 It needs to have 4 CPUS in order to play effectively. This patch updates
 the default profile to allow 4 CPUS. With 4 CPUs the playback quality is
 excellent. In fact I prefer it this way and have commented the MPEG2
 license on my frontend.
