Please note that every user can start it's own vncserver in background:

1. Login to the development server i.e. using ssh and type
Code:
vncserver -depth 24 :1
You will be asked for a password.

2. On the client, type:
Code:
vncviewer <serverip>:1
And type in the password.

3. To shutdown the vncserver, type
Code:
vncserver -kill :1
Please note that every user has to use a different unique display number
(":2", ":3", etc.)

Video playback worksnot too bad (VLC on Fedora 10) for small videos, but is
not very smooth for 720p material (maybe 10 fps). BTW: no special VirtualGL
required for this
