ffmpeg does not support wmv-hd (as wmv is VC1). I do not imagine that there will ever be XvMC support for VC1 in linux, since there is no native decoder. Use Xv for your output device for VC1.
Thank you for your time,
Hmm? I tried an Original DVD with MPEG2 and mplayer. I get the same error...
But ffmpeg seems to support it.
Read the changelog for the line VC-1/WMV3/WMV9 video decoder: http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu/changelog.html
