I was able to watch DIVX clips on my dreamcast before I put it away, and 
those should be much more difficult to render than mpeg2, but I think Joe's 
right about you needing to make your own frontend. On the plus side if winCE 
can do something your dreamcast should be able to as well, but I seem to 
remember one of the reasons for failure in the dreamcast was the difficulty 
in programming its graphics system, then again I never tried.
