Wah that was really good progress from Andrzej.

I wouldn't give up on SD card as storage without trying it: if I
understood what goes on then only the MP4 compressed stream is being
sent to the Glamo by mplayer... I guess it means 100 - 200KBytes/sec
which is way below the point we choke the Glamo memory bus.  So we
should be able to be pulling 200 - 300KBytes/sec (including audio) at
the same from from SD.

The wildcard is what the MPEG decoder unit in the Glamo is doing from
the inside in terms of hogging the internal memory.
