video acceleration desired

Playing an AVI video with FreeBSD6.2 on a 
appears in slow motion with KDE-Kaffeine.  It appears the Via CPU is 
doing all the work and that the graphics hardware is not fully 
exploited. "/var/messages" shows detection of specific VIA hardware 
such as network, USB, and audio ..  but nothing special for video.

I did "grep -r vid_find /usr/src" and concluded there is only support 
for ATI MACH video adapters. Everything else relies on some generic 
mechanism.  My goal is to use this nifty little mini-itx for a custom 
PVR but am hampered by this slow video problem. Any suggestions?
