Michael, missed your post earlier. I can report that I'm able to use  
mplayer successfully in FS mode with "-vo xvmc -vc ffmpeg12mc" on my  
M10K. This is the older mplayer pre6 with the patch from the  
Unichrome project - not sure if this is the same one as you're using.  
I saw a post about a patch against mplayer pre7, but failed to track  
it down - it's not been posted at the project site http:// 

This is on FC3, and I don't have anything insightful to suggest for  
Gentoo unfortunately, except maybe that you try mplayer pre6 with the  
"official" patch.

Sorry I can't be much more help,
