Actually, unless things have changed, last I looked into that, there was no
support in the OpenChrome drivers for the MPEG4 accelerator, and there
wasn't any plans to add it, either.  Of course, there may be work going on
in other projects (eg, xine), but I'd look into that carefully before
purchasing anything.
