As Darius said the "Standard XvMC" is what you want. Apparently, it is
named "Standard XvMC" as there is also the non-standard XvMC for Via
Unichrome. Start mythfrontend with the logging option (mythfrontend -l
log.file.txt) and check for XvMC and for the "realtime priority" if
you've enabled that option.
