This sounds very interesting to me. I compiled the example code from 
this wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X_video_extension
The file is linked: http://bellet.info/XVideo/testxv.c

compiled without any problems and render the test image but the Xglamo 
process takes all cpu power and the application crashed. (I think it 
crashes because it is not able to finish 200 refreshs.)

I tryout some example with the python-evas binding:
python /usr/share/python-ecore/examples/ecore_evas/00-empty.py
python /usr/share/python-ecore/examples/ecore_evas/03-image.py

all examples crash with a segmentation fault after a while. (Nothing is 
displayed :-( )

If anyone here in the list have example code how to upload a image to 
the Xglamo with max performance plz. publish it.
I think it would be cool to establish a recipe wiki area where different 
solutions for thinks like this could be published.
