Just a few months removed from its 1.2 update, the latest version of the GeeXBoX LiveCD has added multi threaded video decoding for MPEG-1/2/4 and h.264, which should finally let all users decode even 1080p video on dual- and quad-core systems running Linux. Otherwise there's some additional DVD CSS tweaks, updated MPlayer and codec support, so why not burn a copy and take a tour? Load it RAM, pop out the CD and run whatever discs and hard drive stored media your heart desires.
