1920 x 1080, 24bpp, 24 fps 10001.5 kbps (1220.9 kbytes/s), MPEG-4 v2,  
using ffmpeg to decode.

Using the X11 video output, looks like the machine is just plain fast  
enough to play it without any help from the GPU, not even XV.

I will say that I could keep a cup of coffee hot on top of the thing  
though :-)
