The omap1710 in my nokia 770 does 400x240 at 25fps using gstreamer. But keep in mind that
the s3c2410 doesn't have dsp to offload the decoding to.

Software can't magically fix a slow framebuffer. Last I heard you couldn't trigger full
redraws at 20fps on the s3c2410fb, so all the decoding power in the world couldn't get you
fluid playback if you can't get it on the screen in time.

That would be cool indeed. Are you going to push these upstream to mplayer svn as well?
