Yep, sorry I didn't pipe up earlier. It is difficult to enable
in SVN head, easy to enable in the mythtv-vid branch. There are
Xorg configurations that make XvMC OpenGL inefficient, for
example the XComposite extension + an OpenGL rendering method
requires a hefty video card. The mythtv-vid branch makes it
much easier to chose which rendering method to use so this
isn't a significant problem there.
