The graphics card is an onboard ATI 3D Rage LT Pro AGP-133.
Do I have to explicitly enable Xv?
In the xorg-logfile there only these two line about Xv:
(II) Loading extension XVideo
(II) Loading extension XVideo-MotionCompensation

xdpyinfo lists XVideo as an extension.

Do I have to start xine with a special option to use Xv?
