You could do this using the Video DSP on the latest GForce 6800 as it can
decode MPEG-4, WMV and MPEG2, but unfortunately the chip specs haven't
been released yet - Nvidia had bad experiences with opening
programmability too early with register combiners, with fragment shaders
replacing it immediately afterwards.
They think the DSP is still too limited to open it to the public.
