+<P><B>MPlayer</B> supports displaying movies using OpenGL, but if your
+platform/driver supports xv as should be the case on a PC with Linux, use xv
+instead, OpenGL performance is considerably worse. If you have an X11
+implementation without xv support, OpenGL is a viable alternative.</P>
+<P>Unfortunately not all drivers support this feature. The Utah-GLX drivers
+(for XFree86 3.3.6) support it for all cards. See
+<A HREF="http://utah-glx.sourceforge.net">http://utah-glx.sourceforge.net</A>
 for details about how to install it.</P>
-<P>XFree86(DRI) >= 4.0.3 supports it only with Matrox, and Radeon cards.
