[K12OSN] playing video files on thin client... any issues?

Hi, everyone!

I've installed MPlayer on one of our K12LTSP servers
(4.4.1) to play windows media and quicktime files. 
Everything works okay (video's fine, and sound works)
when I play these kinds of video files when I log in
directly at the server computer.

My question: Will I likely have problems with 15 thin
clients each running MPlayer at the same time?  (I
haven't had performance problems when, for example,
they've all been running Firefox or OpenOffice.)

By the way, the server PC has a 3 GHz AMD CPU with 2
GB memory.  And each thin client PC has a sound card
that works with K12LTSP.

Thanks for any advice you all can provide!
