Hello Ilariu,

I didn't think softdevice actually supported XVMC - I can't see any
options for it in the Makefile to tweak. Only XV/DFB/VIDIX etc.
The only output method I have compiled in is XV. (this is CVS checkout
of softdevice).

A quick grep through the source for 'xvmc' doesn't match anything
either?

Thanks,
Chris
