High CPU AIGLX Watching Video Full Screen

I have T60 laptop with ATI X1400. I recently upgraded my driver to 7.12 latest release on 18-Jan-2008 from ATI. I noticed that when I was viewing videos in full screen the CPU was touching 100% or closer to that. I googled and found out that I had selected X11 as the output instead I selected xv or xvideo extension which is accelerated graphics and it worked. Now, no more 100% CPU when watching full screen videos. Credit goes to the original poster.. sorry I do not have the link with me.

Just in case you are facing the same problem then you can use this, hopefully it should help.
