Ilariu,

Hm I don't think XvMC is enabled. It would say so in Xorg.0.log if it
was, right? A complete copy of my most recent X startup is here
http://spork.qfe3.net/~chris/vdr/Xorg.0.log

No mention of XvMC that I can see, so I presume it's off. Config is:
http://spork.qfe3.net/~chris/vdr/xorg.conf
all fairly simple and almost the defaults.

Chris
