I think you're referring to GPU decoding of video, this is supported
through VA-API, but at the moment only for MPEG2. H264 is apparently
planned for Q2 this year:
That said, you're probably doing something wrong if you're getting so
low CPU usage, if I try to play 1080p material it easily consumes most
of the CPU...
