as per the thread (just scroll back through it) there is a general limitation
of video bus bandwidth. this will always limit the amount of data you can feed
to the graphics chip (the glamo). this SAME bus is SHARED with SD Card data. so
that same bandwidth now is for both functions, not just graphics.

i tested - 21fps is what i got for my 320x240 test mp3g4 file (of course
bitrate will vary this framerate, and different codecs will also affect it).
