I doubt it.

Based on my anecdotal experience (edited home-recorded videos in
Kino), I'd suggest you try a cheap  video card (you can get low-end
PCI-E ones from Newegg for about $40). Embedded video is less
expensive and uses less power than a dedicated card, but memory
contention really slows it down.
