None of it, because there is no such thing. MPEG1 Layer III on the
other hand.. Some of the bitstream decoding could perhaps be done
on the drive. The main obstacle is the huffman tables: too many and
too large, unless the drive reloads them on-demand from the disk..
Layer 1 and 2 should be possible.

You didn't expect it to be real-time, did you?:-)
