Default Re: How to tell if you are using XvMC?

This might be more of a MythTV question, but anyway...

Try running mythfrontend at a terminal, then you will see messages like this when it is using XvMC:

XvMC: picture structure FRAME
For me, despite some of the warnings and errors above, it is playing using XvMC.

Note that XvMC (for most cards for now) only works with MPEG-2 video. See for more info.
