If you're playing VDPAU-capable content, it's all going to be
compressed. You will only consume a couple MBps of bandwidth during
playback. If you're playing something else, it will be transferred at
full resolution and framerate (of the video). Standard definition
should be fine. 720p may cause problems. 1080i/p is right out.
If all your content is from IVTV cards, why not just get an older AGP
card and use software playback?
