I have exactly the same problem.
I would describe it as wrong horizontal sync signal. The lines are twitching/shifting like if you send monitor a signal it can't handle.

It only happens when playing video with xv driver (using mplayer). When I use the gl2 or x11 drivers, it is OK.
Solution is to downgrade to 4191 drivers.
(4191 and earlier don't do it, 4349 and later do).

My software/hardware configuration:
GeForce2 MX with TV-Out
MSI KT-400
RedHat 8.0 with vanilla kernel 2.4.21-pre1.
