There is a skeleton for freevo that is in the PR database waiting to be 
committed.  You can grab that and drop it in your ports and compile and it 
should work, at least it did for me about a month ago.  There is also a 
driver to use the hardware mpeg encoder on your card.  Check the 
multimedia mailing list archives for your card name.
