-There's a relatively new nVidia driver out there, it's known to work on Riva

-  It's recommended to use the binary nVidia drivers for X before using this
-  VIDIX driver, because some of the registers which need to be initialized
-  haven't been discovered yet, so it will probably fail with the Open Source

-  Currently only codecs capable of UYVY colorspace output
-  can work in conjunction with this driver. Unfortunately, this excludes
-  every single decoder from the
-  <systemitem class="library">libavcodec</systemitem> family. This leaves
-  us with the following usable popular codecs:
-  <systemitem>cvid, divxds, xvid, divx4, wmv7, wmv8</systemitem> and some
-  others. Please note that this is only
-  a temporal inconvenience. The usage syntax is as follows:
-  <screen>mplayer -vf format=uyvy -vc divxds <replaceable>divx3file.avi</replaceable> </screen>

   An unique feature of the nvidia_vid driver is its ability to display video on
   <emphasis role="bold">plain, pure, text-only console</emphasis> - with no
   framebuffer or X magic whatsoever. For this purpose, we'll have to use the
   <option>cvidix</option> video output, as the following example shows:
-  <screen>mplayer -vf format=uyvy -vc divxds -vo cvidix <replaceable>example.avi</replaceable> </screen>
+  <screen>mplayer -vo cvidix <replaceable>example.avi</replaceable></screen>
-Reports awaited!
