Hello Eric,

From the intel man page,

Option "XvMC" "boolean"
       Enable  XvMC driver. Current support MPEG2 MC on 915/945 and G33
       series.  User should provide absolute path to libIntelXvMC.so in
       XvMCConfig file.  Default: Disabled.

There is another option, regarding XvMC surfaces. I've got no
experience with XvMC, but I suspect these are the valid xorg.conf
options in the "device" section.
