On Fedora 9, I'm trying to enable XVMC with a:

Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated 
Graphics Controller (rev 03)

I've set up the Devices section in xorg.conf:

Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Videocard0"
	Driver      "intel"
	Option      "XvMCSurfaces" "7"

But xvmc does not get enabled:
