I have a laptop with a i945 video card.  I can watch HD (1080i) just fine on
I had to make the following tuneups to it.

Depends on what driver version you have. If you have 1.7.XX then apply
the following to your xorg.conf to increase XV performance.

 "CacheLines" "2048"
"LinearAlloc" "6144"

If you have the 2.X intel drivers, apply only

"LinearAlloc" "6144"

If you search google for references on cachelines and linearalloc and the
i915 and i945 video cards
you'll see more references on this.
