Possibly it really does not have xv hardware, but probably it's just
that the fglrx drivers suck. You can't use the opensource drivers?
If you have to use fglrx I'd recommend using -vo gl:yuv=2 or something
similar, x11 is quite slow and really not a good idea for such high
resolutions (though since your video is already in BGR format -vo gl is
probably not faster. You could try "-vo gl -dr" though, I do not know if
ATI supports the functions needed for that yet though).

No, doesn't seem like a problem related to the video card, BGR stuff if
just tested very rarely, it could be something missed while porting
to AMD64 architecture.
