Actually, this was a stupid on my part.  The Load "V4L" line was missing from my xorg.conf.  Nothing works very well that way.  I do have the SyncToVBlank off, but won't know until later if I see tearing or not.  I've somehow killed my audio in my last update, and without audio video playback isn't much to look at.  Hopefully tomorrow night I can get that straightened out and see what happens.

BTW, since I have a 3.0G HT processor, I'm hoping to avoid XVMC, so it may be that the VBlank issues won't matter so much for me.
