The Gmini uses a TCC370 from Telechips, which seems to be Samsung's "design house" (according to Samsung).
You can find some information about it here :
It seems to be composed of a 16 bits CPU and a 24 bits DSP, it's probably reasonnable to think that it has enough power to deal with some kind of video compression, probably not DivX though :)
On the beginning of the week, I sent back the form Telechips asked me to fill in order to get more information about it, I'm still awaiting their answer, hoping that they will be ok with sending this to an individual (their form is made for commercial firms).
If I get back anything that is freely distributable I'll make it available here.
