This one does not seem to work :-(
# DISPLAY=:0.0 mplayer -vo sdl:xv -dvd-device ...
Could not parse arguments at the position indicated below:
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device.

It seems Xvmc is not usable when DRI is off, Xorg.0.log says so.
And as far as I understood, this is the hardware stuff for MPEG-2
decompression. Or maybe I'm just wrong(c) ?
With DRM, I can use it:
/var/log/Xorg.0.log:(II) VIA(0): [XvMC] Registering viaXvMC.
/var/log/Xorg.0.log:(II) VIA(0): [XvMC] Initialized XvMC extension.
Although I'm not sure I'm using it in anyway :-)
This probably look like a mplayer|xorg issue ?
Maybe I should switch to pkgsrc-users@ ?
