Are you sure it's necessary? I'm fairly sure the matrox driver on the X
server supports most of the hardware features needed for playing back
video. I have vo=xv in my mplayer.conf, and full frame video takes up
very little CPU time on my machine - usage sits at only about 20%, on a
1Ghz PIII with Matrox G400 Max card.
