It probably would be too slow on account of the encryption - a 500kbps 
xvid stream (400x240) is just about the max that can be decoded from 
local storage on an N800.  You always have the option of simply loading 
a large memory card with videos if that's your intent, though.  Most 
everything else remotely should be alright.
