Faster mplayer & sshfs

Two tricks that I shouldn't forget (and maybe you should learn too :).

Multi-threaded mplayer for better HD decoding performance on multi-core processors:

sshfs using busybox, for attaching an USB harddrive to an OpenWRT router, without worrying about samba:
On OpenWRT device: opkg install openssh-sftp-server
On Ubuntu machine: sshfs -o sftp_server=/usr/lib/sftp-server user@192.168.x.y:/mnt/drive /path/to/dest
