Asking 'bout Xgl and video players....

First, let me say hi to all and thanks by any response.....

Well you see, I just check it out Xgl in my system (Debian Sid - Kernel 2.6.16)

So far, the isntallation has been succesfull and is running fine to be something new, but I'm now getting an error whit the video players

Of course, I now that Xgl is like "new stuff" thing and I now that is still in developement, in either case, I explaing whats my problem:

Neither Mplayer o Kplayer works under Xgl server, every time that I try to put a video, just restart the Xs

In the beginning (I just install this X a few days ago)the players work but with some problems....if I was trying to play any video, the players did do it but really slow consuming all my CPU resources....

I upgrade the Xgl and compiz packages (I obteined from SuSe page) and suddenly, this players doesn't work

I think, correct me if I'm wrong, that is just a problem (bug) with the packages, as far as I'd read, theres no much support with KDE like there's with Gnome (I use KDE 3.5.2)

With VLC is the only player that I can watch videos (but can't get them on fullscreen)

Well, excuse me the long of the message, I'm trying to explain it good. I just want to know if others are experiencing this problems too or if you have read something about this problems....
