I can ssh  from my low powered laptop  to my powerfull server  linux system and start a vncserver.  

If I go to youtube I get the video on my laptop however no sound.  If the sound stays on my big powerfull server is there a way I can play it off the server ?    

My laptop does not have 16 gigs of ram and a new 4 core process, and 2 TB of disk space :) it would be nice to use all that  power instead of this  older 299$ laptop :)

some don't support audio; might need to use something different to connect with instead of vnc server
