See, there is no XV_BRIGHTNESS or XV_CONTRAST attribute, thus no video player (or xattr tool) can set brightness or contrast on XVideo adaptor. I doubt it's unsupported by hardware. It seems to be unimplemented in nouveau driver. (I don't know whether it worked before or did not.)

This is supported in F15 now, but will likely not be backported to F14.
