I am also (IMO) using XvMCW with the library path specified in 
/etc/X11/XvMCConfig. I have replaced the libviaXvMC.so.1.0 library with 
the one from Terry Barnaby's RPMs and updated the symlinks.

In MythTV...Setup...TV Settings..Playback i have the option "Use 
hardware XvMC MPEG Decoding" which is what I change to break/unbreak 
playback. AFAIK, nothing mentions XvMC VLD (as stated by James) anywhere...

Does this shed some more light on the issue?

Thans again,
Rob :)
