A1200, A4000 and CD32 support it, it's called HAM8 and displays 262,144 colours on screen from a 24bit palette.

As for the CDXL limitations on the CD32 it was the 2x speed CD drive holding back the size and quality of the video, which is why CDTV CDXLs are half the size of CD32 ones, they were designed to spool from its 1x speed CD drive.

The reason the CD32 missed out on a lot of the FMV games is because it was never officially released in USA where most of those games were made and became popular. Nearly all the CD32 games ended up being from smaller European development houses.
