Its more a thing for hardware decoder cards that cannot handle an
uncompressed video stream, as it always re-encodes to some fixed output
format, eg. mpeg1/2.

The mplayer plugin modification should be ressurectable, with some
updates to plugin structure. It basically expects a video stream that
can be handled by the output device delivered via unix pipe. However,
the mplayer playback-recode-to-file feature is quite broken, and
currently needs some ugly workarounds. And of course, its still
uncertain why the TT6400 denies playback of mplayer encoded video.
