I have a 9500GT w/512MB on Fedora 10 32-bit and mythtv 0.22-fixes.  I am
currently using NVidia driver version 190.42 and video playback is very
smooth.  Video playback has been quite smooth on my system for quite some
time, but I have been keeping current on the NVidia driver versions as they
have been released.

I would concur with the recommendation that you try 190.42.
