Summary says it all, but to clarify:
dafox@rakka ~ $ xvattr | grep Name | sort -u
Name: Intel(R) Textured Video
I.e. the XV_HUE, XV_SATURATION, and XV_GAMMA video attributes seem to be missing. Further when using a video-playback software (mplayer) it is not possible to change the appearance of the video at all; e.g. not even the brightness and contrast adjustments appear to work. This seems to be because the two attributes that are present (XV_BRIGHTNESS and XV_CONTRAST) do not work (see bug #18441).
Hardware is Dell XPS 15 (L502x) with:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Device 0116 (rev 09)
[ 13.803] (II) intel(0): Integrated Graphics Chipset: Intel(R) Sandybridge
Merging with the earlier bug to implement them...
