It seems like the OpenGL renderer is being used. Are you correctly
configured for OpenGL? What happens if you select a playback profile
that uses something else, like the Xv renderer?

I think I have never gotten OpenGL rendering to work on Intel video
hardware. It's been a few months since I tried, though, so things may
have improved since then.
