My notebook has an Intel 945 integrated graphics chipset.  This mroe or

vlc, mplayer, etc. since they try XV first and bomb out when it breaks).

Have you reported bugs regarding this - especially mplayer?

It's not an mplayer bug - it's a problem with Xvideo under Beryl with the intel driver.


Also, anything that does OpenGL itself is very dodgy - lots of flickering
and the openGL stuff doesn't get transformed when you do things like
wobbly windows, cube rotation, etc.

Jup, my experience also. Plus great matrox cards aren't supported.

OpenGL stuff seems to work mostly ok in Beryl on nVidia cards using the propriatory driver (although the speed isn't great).
