At this time, Xv is known not to work with desktop effects enabled. As a
workaround, you can switch to the non-Xv video driver (using
gstreamer-properties) to get video to play.
Can you attach the output of 'xvinfo' as well please? It's in xorg-x11-utils if
you don't already have it installed.
Is this expected to change for F7? In FC6 (and for most of the F7 development)
Xv worked (although with some funny artifacts). IMVHO this was preferrable to
the current state, especially as most of the time the video window will not be
moved around/be in fullscreen mode.

I am also experiencing a similar problem.
This still seems to be a problem in Fedora 7 final ...
