from www, right ? :)

Mostly, yes. I have some BlueRay disks I will try to RIP sometime when I
get access to a drive although when I tried ~1 yr. ago it wasn't
straight forward to make a backup. Those were disks I had for $1 at a
yard sale and wanted to try and see if someone with a collection could
then RIP them to free formats in order to avoid the imposed content
(such as previews and other crap) - like on DVDs.

Another great movie for kids is Big Buck bunny.

dual core CPU (e.g. 2x2GHz).

I doubt I am using any hardware acceleration for video at home on the
Trisquel (core i5) box, as I said all videos (1080p) I threw at it
showed up just fine.
