Hi Yves,
The library loads fine - I can put other externals from the library in
and they work. At Pd start up it outputs a message about loading pdp, 
so that's all good.
I think my Xserver must support xvideo extension because mplayer and
xine both use it to render.
It almost appears as if pdp_xv.o wasn't compiled into the lib.
Perhaps I'll try and contact Pablo and see what he has to say.
Thanks for your help!
