I've built some experimental add-ons to the gtk renderer that allow it
to use XVideo, if that will help you out.  I've tested it on 1Ghz
Geode "thin client" devices with an old SiS video chipset.  It runs
Ubuntu 7.10 (256MB ram, 512MB flash), and can blow up flash content to
1280x1024 with very little CPU use.

Not very useful for piece-mealing out the work of flash components,
but great for full-screen viewing.
