Well, my EN12000EG has no problem playing back full NTSC-resolution MPEG4s,
and my bet is an M10000 would be able to manage, as well.  Anything slower,
though, and you're taking your chances.

And as a side note, the Unichrome MPEG4 acceleration stuff that's available
in some of the newer chipsets is a) unsupported, and b) apparently largely
useless (see the OpenChrome mailing list for details), so don't expect
hardware acceleration to help you. :)
