So if you disable XvMC, you can't watch any HD content?

I thought all AMD64 CPUs would be beefy enough to do so ... I've been
using --disable-xvmc with the "old" nvidia drivers (7174 I think) and
have been able to watch HD fine on an Athlon64 3500+.

I've never had any success with XvMC, but I've never had the patience
to try something that fails 3 times in a row, let alone 7-24 times in
a row :)
