Ideally, I think Totem should fall back to not using Xv so it can still
start. It should also pop up a message informing the user that video
acceleration is not available and that performance will be severely

Optionally, it could also tell them to reconfigure Totem once
acceleration is enabled. How to enable it is another's
really challenging what to tell the user without sending them to learn
the intricacies of xorg.conf.
