XvMC in a nutshell is MPEG-2 playback acceleration using the video card
to do things in hardware normally done in software. If you have a
capable processor, XvMC is unnecessary, but if you are using a low-end
machine as a frontend, it could matter. I personally don't use it but
that's what it is for.
