XvMC-OpenGL got removed in changeset 20723.

"Remove the xvmc-opengl video renderer. The code is not widely used,
has probably been broken for some time, has limited vendor/hardware
suppport, supports only 1 video codec and is superceded by newer APIs.

Works fine here ...

In IRC #mythtv, on dev said something along the line when XvMC-opengl
was being discussed, that you could scream at him (or was it something
more nasty :)
