I don't know *anything* about this stuff, but have been trying to
understand it some over the last couple of days.  All I do know is
that my HD recordings (from DVB-T cards in Australia) seem to consume
quite a lot of CPU when played back (almost 90% of one core).  This is
a Pentium D 3.0GHz machine with onboard Intel graphics.  I assumed
that XvMC isn't working for my card since so much CPU is being used.
I am using the standard Intel driver that comes with Ubuntu Fiesty.
This is my xorg.conf for the adaptor.

Section "Device"
	Identifier	"Intel Corporation 82865G Integrated Graphics Controller"
	Driver		"intel"
	BusID		"PCI:0:2:0"
	Option		"UseFBDev"		"true"
