MPEG decoder from Nullsoft's WinAMP supports quality settings for
slower cpus it says: Qualiy (Full/Half/Quarter): Selecting Half or
Quarter quality will downsample the output, resulting in less
Maybe implementation of such feature in mp3lib would be possible.
And saw FHGs win32 mpeg decoder shipped with mpplayer codecs package
also support downsampling (says Frequency Full/Half/Quarte in
Properties page), also supports changing resolution from 16bit to 8bit.
So if we lookup the right registry key we could also change that
options under wine loader.
