Sure, if you enable the X11 Composite extension with something
like this in your xorg.conf
Section "Extensions"
    Option "Composite" "true"

Or, enable XvMC textures using this in your xorg.conf
    Option "XvmcUsesTextures" "true"

This will implicitly disable XVideo overlay and along with
a few other features like XVideo picture attributes.

Some Xorg packagers enable the Composite extension by default
in which case you would need to add this to you xorg.conf
Section "Extensions"
    Option "Composite" "false"

No, you need a more powerful card to use this feature.
