I compile xine-lib-1.2 myself. I use mplayer-nogui (and have used
mplayer2), but I don't use gstreamer, and don't bother installing
ffmpeg since everything works fine without an external copy.

Sorry, I missed the low profile card requirement.

I used 8400's before upgrading to GT220 & GT240. They worked ok but
the best deinterlacer I could use on HD content was bob. I haven't
used an 8200igp as you are but based on my experience with 8400, I
would guess 8400 is the minimum requirement.
