It's OK. Probably isn't required anyway, since ati claims that their
drivers support even opengl 2.0 right now and this is still unchanged.

Again, nothing wrong. Xv sucks beyond imagination on fglrx drivers.
Don't really know why and how it works, but compared to xv in radeon
driver or xvidix with any driver its quality really sucks - it gives
some kind of weird pixelization. I'm not sure whether this happens
always or if your screen resolution is larger than some value, but I
Anyway, since on fglrx drivers only either opengl overlay or xv can be
turned on, this person probably uses opengl overlay.
I'm using this setup for a long time and have no problems with it
