Default Multithreaded video.

Is there any video player that takes advantage of multithread? As my Nvidia card is not useful under OpenBSD (so I have to use X11 output), I would like to play video using more cores. I tried mplayer/smplayer to not avail, only one thread is used and hence the resolution is limited and full screen is painful.

I tried to re-encode the video to H264 through mencoder, and it did it using multithread, but mplayer did not used it when playing the re-encoded video.

Am I missing something or is it just impossible?
