Well I guess that 965 is able to support at least partially the video 
decoding (its either hardwired or using shaders, i dont remember), but 
yes the real question is: do 965 hardware and software support video 
decoding. If only the hardware can do as I fear, what is needed (like 
port some shaders programs) to enable the software driver to do at 
least part of the video decoding (by which I mean: mpeg2-4 and others 
if possible).
