I don't know what you mean by "always" fail, but we cannot give 
libavcodec 1280x720 picture buffers when it requests 1280x738 ones.

You can't do direct rendering with XVideo and libavcodec. This is a 
design limitation of the XVideo 2.2 protocol.

Or you can, but you get the infamous green lines bleeding.
