Just as a warning, Adobe is probably this year going to push SWF as an
official standard, ala OOXML... at least that's the rumor...

This is why we've been adding XVideo support, which has not been a
trivial task as it turns out.

Yep, hopefully the code will stabilize over the next week now that the
holiday's are over. The Code freeze starts after FOSDEM, the release
itself won't be out till late Feb. It will also have support for the
MIT-SHM extension, which works now, and also helps with performance
issues. We hope the combination of these two performance hacks helps on
low end hardware like the XO.
