How do I test my video acceleration for 2D and 3D?

Hi, I recently watched a DVD on my PC. While it was watchable, it noticeably had some choppy parts. I suspect that my 2D acceleration isn't working as it should.

I currently have the open source ATI driver configured. How do I test my 2D and 3D acceleration to ensure I'm not doing something stupid like using VESA?

glxinfo | grep OpenGL (you may need to install the mesa-demos package for those commands to work)

and

glxinfo | grep direct

Heh,  I get

[earlz@EarlzZeta MonoDevelop.Core]$ glxinfo | grep OpenGL
OpenGL vendor string: X.Org
OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD RV620
OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 8.0.4
OpenGL shading language version string: 1.20
OpenGL extensions:
[earlz@EarlzZeta MonoDevelop.Core]$ glxinfo | grep direct
direct rendering: Yes

so I assume all systems are good. Any ideas why DVD playback would be choppy then using VLC?
