I'm fascinated that you managed to get a picture (of anything) on the screen
using the exa-via-dri branch at the moment :).. It contains only a small
amount of code leading up to the point when I realised the serious problem
with trying to do EXA over DRI within an fbdev-based DDX without KMS [1]:

Both the exa-via-dri and dri-aware branches of xf86-video-glamo will be going
away quite soon in favour of a new "kms" branch, which works round these
issues, and has an added bonus of being much simpler.  The kernel parts of
KMS necessary to get an "old-style" fbdev Xorg driver running are working
already, this part is about making our Xorg driver use the KMS framework.
I'll send an email to OM-Devel to clarify this when this next stage of things
is working.

But anyway, are you interesting in making the mplayer driver use DRI?  If so,
that's fantastic - it'd allow cooperation between Xorg's acceleration and the
video acceleration.
