You do not mention here what hardware you are running, but I had the same thing happend when I changed to using the OpenGL painter...agonizingly slow menu fades and transitions.
A day or two later I noted that I no longer had an XvMCConfig file in /etc/X11. Recreating that file with its one line 'libvia' library reference in effect turned XvMC back on. I presume that the system was not using the hardware specific capabilities because the Wrapper reference had disappeared. Glxgears was only 10%!!! of the hardware enabled rate: 79 down from 790 odd!.
I have NO idea how or why that file should/could have just disappeared. At the point that this took place, my mythbox' uptime was approaching 6 weeks and I had done nothing but some software only changes, none of which included an 'rm -f' of that file.
So if you are using via, nvidia or i810 specific drivers for xvmc, check there.
