Video playback - reasonable sized works!

Using a copy of mplayer originally intended for the Zaurus, mentioned by 
anrp on IRC.

I played back a random video - which happened to be
VIDEO:  MPEG1  352x240  (aspect 1)  24.000 fps  1536.0 kbps 
(192.0 kbyte/s)

It 'just worked'.

Well - admittedly - top was enough load to make it start losing frames - 
but without it it stayed in sync.
With 32kbps mp3 audio.

On another promising note, the same copy of mplayer played a test mp3 
(128kbit) at 10% CPU, compared to madplay at 17%.

xfbdev needs killed first - and you need to use fbdev2 framebuffer mode 
- before fbdev (which works).
