That is true. I was referring to playback issues only. Once I move
Myth itself to VDPAU, I'll start allowing the FE machines to handle
jobs like comflagging. It won't happen until it's a stable release
that supports VDPAU though, as I don't want to track Myth trunk and
mplayer patches. Right now, I make the fileserver deal with it, but
it's not very nice to the server. :)
