Comment 31 for bug 395932

well... I just tested the patches and after that the video overlay is detected, I can play videos with mplayer using it, but can't put them in fullscreen, I just get a blue screen and mplayer spams this :

X11 error: BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)

so there might be a problem somewhere. There is no error nor warnings in the kernel, the Xorg.log or anywhere else than the output of mplayer.

xvinfo has a promising output:

So I think there might be just a little thing missing to make it work, unfortunately I don't know anything about the intel driver to begin the debug. My card :
