Default XvMC - For GF4 and FX Models Only?!

Is XvMC for GF4 and FX models only? Would be a shape if my 7600GT is inferior to the GF4AGP I have in the closet...

Thanks,
DrCR

No it works for Geforce6, 7 and 8 cards as well. Standard Xv is a little more limited on >Geforce6 cards (except for the old NV40 Geforce6800). Nvidia removed hardware overlay support which Xv used. It works differently now.
