Note that he's talking about h264 decoder in mplayer (actually libavcodec,
but that's beside the point), so this question has nothing to do with
x264 encoder.

As for the original question, I think this is because Linux on PS3 does not
use the video card directly, only via a special framebuffer which supports
no acceleration. SPUs are not used either.

oppression to develop psychic muscles.
