Have you checked CPU use while trying to decode the video on this machine?
It's quite possible that an Atom machine can't play back some content
without GPU assist. I would think MPEG2 DVD level bitrates would probably be
OK, but you can't know unless you check while it's running. If the CPU is
OK, how about the disk/network I/O?
