XvMC and Intel G33

Hi. I've got a Shuttle SG33G5M which is using the Intel G33 chipset. I was
hoping to get XvMC to work with this hardware, but so far no success. My
xorg.conf contains the following:
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
Option "XvMC" "true"
...and the X server log indicates that XvMC is enabled correctly:
(II) Loading extension XVideo-MotionCompensation
(**) intel(0): Intel XvMC decoder enabled
However mplayer refuses to use -vo xvmc, claiming:
vo_xvmc: X-Video extension 2.2
vo_xvmc: No X-Video MotionCompensation Extension on :0.0
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device.
I'm running Ubuntu Hardy (x86 version), but have installed the Intel video
driver from the developement branch (2.3.2-1ubuntu3), and I believe XvMC is
supposed to be supported on the G33 with this version. I've tried putting
both "libIntelXvMC.so" and "/usr/lib/libIntelXvMC.so" in /etc/X11/XvMCConfig,
as well as leaving it to the default "libXvMC.so.1". Doesn't help though, and
I'm out of ideas on what to try next. Any suggestions?
