I'd never heard of IEGD, but google is your friend.

I've also been waiting for SVDO support. Especially now that Keith 
Packard writes today that XvMC support has been committed, the intel 
chipsets would be a great basis for HTPC.

But why can't we just use IEGD. Can it just be built and run under X 
like any driver? It certainly seems to be able to do everything ( 
including h.264/vc-1) I need.
