FYI 8x.xx is hozed for Xv output of NTSC MPEG4 too. Pegs some resources
and is extremely jerky. I've stayed at 7676. This isn't the first
time that nVidia has released new versions with new bugs. 4363 worked
just fine then there were several 5xxx broken versions. 6629 worked
well as did all the releases up to 7676.
