Joy!  If you're up to it, grab the XFree86 4.3 experimental debs. The 
radeon driver in 4.3 fixes the XVideo problem. Plus brightness & 
contrast controls for XVideo also works now.

Full hardware TCL is also available but you will need to compile a new
radeon.o module for the your kernel (xlibmesa4-drm-src).

The X Strike Force is working on making XFree86 4.3 debs available, 
based on the work done by Daniel Stone. If you can't wait, try these

# XFree86 4.3 Debs
#deb http://penguinppc.org/~daniels/sid/i386 ./

# XFRee86 4.3 Debs - Mirror
deb ftp://ftp.cs.umn.edu/pub/debian-misc/daniels/current/sid/$(ARCH) ./

NOTE: I believe only i386 and PPC is available for now.
