My understanding is that it's the bit that uses opengl for the video 

I had to add the following lines to the config line to get it to enable:


The system I attempted this on is this:

Fixes branch rev 15013
NVidia driver 100.14.23
Ubuntu 7.10

Of course, it bombed out on make with:

../../libs/libavcodec/libmythavcodec-0.20.2.so: undefined reference to 
../../libs/libavcodec/libmythavcodec-0.20.2.so: undefined reference to 
../../libs/libmythtv/libmythtv-0.20.2.so: undefined reference to 

Not a big deal to me as XvMC is doing OK and this machine is not a
