I did test mplayer on huge movies locally sucessfully :)
Firstly I mount -t nfs to huge movies on another machine.
Secondly I play directly
Both work under OLPC w/o problem.
I try gflashplayer /usb/agrstat09.swf
And memmory crash happen because /usb/agrstat09.swf will eat 338 MB RAM
But that was RAM limitted problem.
I can play it using firefox w/o sound w/o problem via internet.
