No, this is the age-old "XvMC doesn't work" problem. 
The OSD causes the frontend to freeze hard when using
XvMC.  In other cases it only causes severe
stuttering.  I fixed the problem by buying a more
powerful CPU and motherboard so I could use Xv.  So
far that is the only guaranteed fix for this problem.
