I had the same idea for a "work-around" for playing flash on my Myth
box (Revo 1600).  However, the end result was either extremely low
quality or playback that stutters.  After checking CPU usage, my
single core Atom was pegged.  Local videos were playing fine using
VDPAU.  How do you playback content from PlayOn and how do you force a
VDPAU compatible stream?  Are you sure the CrystalHD was not decoding
your PlayOn content?
