well, the cause would certainly be to much data on the bus. i am not sure,
but i think some of the decoding of the videos are taken care of by the
graphics card itself. in that case i guess i shouldn't worry too much.
the biggest question actually is, if it is possible and how is it done,
than? i searched around with google a little, but couldn't find any good
information sources, yet..
