This is an nVidia only option.

If you want chromakeying to work, it needs to be set to false.

Chromakeying allows you to use the ChromaKeyOSD and is AFAIK
required to have playback picture adjustments work. But XvMC
on nVidia hardware is problematic and whatever you can do to
make it work for you is the right thing to do.
