First, I apologize to the mplayer developers, I was using the wrong
mplayer binary, there's one compiled for the n800 with xv support, the
n770 version falls back to x11.


Second, mplayer is choking on the audio portion of the movies I tested,
it seems that I encoded the audio using aac instead of mp3. Disabling
audio let the video play, just a bit slow.

If you look at the Video how to you'll see that the N800 removes many
limitations the 770 has.
