@nmirza: to be clear, I only updated the graphics driver itself (14.32.4), not any "chipset" driver per se.

For completeness, here is my xbmc.log:
I highlighted a line at the beginning of the information notices about OpenGL, in case that's an issue. It's also roughly where video playback begins.

Maybe this is just a stupid question, but if you guys are using a bootcamp'ed Mac mini, why wouldn't you use the OSX version of XBMC...

OSXBMC: Sure, am trying that out too.
Fwiw, I know I can use my MCE remote on Windows, that's a variable on OSX (the Apple remote is insufficiently buttoned).
Praise His Noodly Appendage.

jaredharley: xbmc on osx works flawlessly for me. BUT...i needs my winamp. if there was a winamp port for osx id totally switch, but since there isn't, and the alternatives dont even come close to it i can't. i've heard people sing praises about itunes, and im sure its great for them, i'm a pre-itunes guy, winamp all the way, flexibility with adding directories, vis, plugins, etc etc etc nothing compares to it.

maybe it helps if you compare the debug log of the working osxbmc with the one of the windows port?
i think i read something about specific tweaks which were done for the GMA950 on linux and osx, but i am not sure.

ok so i looked throguh the log and identified an error related to all videos...it says opengl 1.4 present...and then says opengl 2.0 not present right before video. i'm guessing maybe this has something to do with it? i looked and theres no opengl 2.0 download.
now i've heard that theres two versions of xbmc, opengl and directx. could it be i'm using an incorrect version? i followed the instructions on the forums to setup my xbmc, i.e. i have the t3ch build, and also have the newest released xbmc windows build released yesetrday. where do i try the directx version if there is infact one?

I'm kinda new to all of this too, but did you do steps 3 and 7 and posted here:
also AFAIK there isn't a ton of support for the directx version... its mostly the SDL/OpenGL port, since that is based off the linux port, which has more backing already.

You do not want the DirectX version. The DX version is not intended for actual use or media playback. It is solely a skinning tool.
The notice about OpenGL2.0 is because I think the base requirements for XBMC are that your card supports OpenGL 2.0. This may be different form the Windows port though.

yes i hcecked the specs and intel gma 950 is not opengl compatible, only opengl 1.4. xbmc for mac os x works on the same mac mini leaopard partition though, so im not sure thats the problem, but then again thats exactly waht the error states. i have heard there were some mods to the intel 950 chip in the mini, maybe thats exactly what the problem is some sort of defficinecy in drivers.
