I have been using the 9755 driver for about 2 years now. Xvmc setup 
requires a couple of things:

You need freetype, type1, vbe, glx, dbe and extmod in your xorg.conf 
Module section.
You need "UseEvents" "True" and "XvmcUsesTextures" "False" in your video 
card Device section
You need a one line XvMCConfig file with 'libXvMCNVIDIA_dynamic.so.1' as 
that line.

Those things together should enable xvmc. Check dmesg for errors and 
Xorg.0.log for any errors which x finds.

I didn't notice which chipset you are using, but xvmc should work if you 
can run the 9639 driver.
