The H.264 decoder isn't great because CoreAVC is a crapton faster,
primarily due to better architecture, despite the fact that ffmpeg's
assembly is significantly superior.

The Theora decoder, well, nobody gives a crap about Theora anyways.
And the speed doesn't matter, since the Firefox developers seem to
have intentionally sabotaged Theora's decoding speed in 3.5.
