xvinfo. You should find one Xv adaptor, providing one overlay port, unless
you're using recent xf86-video-ati, in which case you'll see another Xv
adaptor, providing 16 textured video ports.

My experience of using textured video on my X300 tells me to stick to using
the overlay port with that card and similar cards: the display is slightly
slower, and it gets a lot slower when the video window content is composited
with other windows' content. (This may not be a problem with R4xx and higher,
though; I don't know.)
