There has been XVideo capability for the Matrox Millennium II (mga2164w) cards
for some time (at least since XFree 4.2.x times).
AFAIK there has been no patch submitted to xorg up till now.
The patch applies cleanly to my X11R6.7.0 tree - the only file affected is
kiwi mga # patch mga_video.c < ~dan/xf420_mga_video-rc1.diff
patching file mga_video.c
Hunk #2 succeeded at 78 (offset -4 lines).
Hunk #3 succeeded at 84 (offset -4 lines).
Hunk #4 succeeded at 1291 (offset -4 lines).
If there are not any major issues, can we go ahead and get this merged into
the main tree?

Patch for mga_video provides XVideo
Patch is originally for XFree 4.2.0 but applies cleanly to Xorg 6.7.0
Also, one would note the major issues he lists, like "extreme (probably beyond
8X) horizontal downscaling will crash the X server"
