This is good. Now you need to compile using:

./configure  --enable-x11 --enable-xrandr --enable-xv --enable-xvmc 

(AND TRY WITH AND WITHOUT --enable-opengl-vsync Might help with any 

Create the /etc/X11/XvMCConfig file with the single line 
"libXvMCNVIDIA_dynamic.so", reboot (not sure that a re-start of X will 
do everything necessary) and try playing some files.

As before, the wiki has details.


         Please let me know if anything I say offends you.
          I may wish to offend you again in the future.
