Doug -- Are you outputting to a 1920x1080i device? 
The reason I ask is because Xv won't keep up with this
resolution using an Athlon 2800.  I also see severe
problems with 720p input streams.  They play at half
speed, with unlistenable sound stuttering, with both
Xv and XvMC on my system.

Given the potential advantage of hardware-assisted
MPEG decoding, I'm rather surprised that few people
(and no developers?) are using XvMC.
