I was getting excited there reading your reasons for upgrading, hoping some major revisions had been made to the Composite extension, but reading the changelog, it looks like not much is new for NVidia, so I guess upgrading isn't too critical for me personally.

Xv has always worked quite well for me, beyond the obligatory crash when using OpenGL applications.

I am very glad it worked for you.
I will wait for 6.9 to be finally released though.

This looks like a good old fashioned Success Story to me. So I have moved it there.
