The supplied version of 'mplayer' does support hardware acceleration but only for the following codecs; MPEG-4/H.263/H.264 (up to 30fps@SD and decoding of VC1 video up to 30fps@SD)

I have played video on mine since day one, granted only avi's (divx/xvid) with video @ approx 1000bps and audio @ 96bps but perfectly watchable (not HD quality, but who wants 6GB movie files!).
