I would imagine the most practical way would be to get SMPEG to output its
data into a YCrCb format buffer (save time on the YCrCb-RGB conversion) 
and dither to a paletted display yourself. Use a 4:2:2 YUV palette.

If you can get SMPEG to about the YUV data in 4:1:1 pixel format, 
that'll be great.

Not that I know anything about SMPEG itself :)
