It's not really limited to XvMC. This is part of a new OSD rendering
method using OpenGL, this won't be enabled in 0.20. Anyway the current
implementation in the trunk is limited to XvMC, but eventually it
won't be. Either way the code is disabled unless you do some special
things when you run ./configure, this message is the only thing you'll
see otherwise and it will always say "Init failed". (If you enable the
actual code you will get a black screen unless you configure your
xorg.conf correctly.)
