I'm still not convinced:
ldd /usr/bin/xine | grep -i xvmc
-> nothing
nm /usr/bin/xine | grep -i xvmc
-> nothing
strings /usr/bin/xine |grep -i xvmc
-> nothing
strings /usr/lib/libxine.so.1.18.0 |grep -i xvmc
This shows results, but they are not very convincing:
No XvMCListSurfaceTypes, No XvMC* at all.

nm my/own/mplayer | grep XvMCListSurfaceTypes
U XvMCListSurfaceTypes
nm /usr/X11/lib/libXvMCW.a | grep XvMCListSurfaceTypes
00001190 T XvMCListSurfaceTypes
strings /usr/X11/lib/libXvMCW.so.1.0 |grep XvMCListSurfaceTypes

What is the configure line for xine?

Except for the wrong path (at least on my system), I have successfully tested
the wrapper with mplayer meanwhile (see also other mail).

Thank you for looking, Carl Eugen
