You, most likely, don't have the XVideo extension on your X server.

What is the output of the following two commands:
        xdpyinfo | fgrep XVideo

(in my system, the first gives me a long information, the second gives:
which means I have XVideo running okay. “XVideo” is the important one,
“XVideo-MotionCompensation” is not important.)
