    Default Mass Effect

    It's a pity that Mass Effect saga isn't on the list of games to support.

    It might be because it uses an unrelated engine... Mass Effect runs on top of the Unreal Engine 3, according to wikipedia.

    Ok now I've tried it (via mplayer) and can say for sure it works. There is a lot more flickering at the start/end of movies on my system so you may want to disable all the splash videos at the beginning, but it works well for the longer videos.
