Could you post your displayprofiles settings from the database? I had still
no luck, i have also tried to set this to 0, but it seems i have an
different problem.

In xvmc-vld-whitout-xv-blit.log i get the decoder running, but the display
is black and i hear only audio.

I have an CLE266 (epia m9000) with latest openchrome drivers.

 Changing it to 4 (like Robin) also got the error to go away.  Also, I
 either mistakenly reported the CPU usage or something else happened, since
 even BEFORE I made this change, the CPU usage was typical of what I would
 expect with decoding active, and the display was fine as well.  Other than
 removing the error message, the change down to 4 had no noticable positive
 or negative effects.  Then again, it would appear that the error message
 itself may have been spurious, since my guess is decoding was working fine
