I don't know it for sure, but it's the same. XVideo is an interface to the
XServer to allow a fast display of video. With XVideo you can for example
get access to the backend scaler of the graphicscard and let the graphicscard
scale the video to fullscreen.
But this depends on the used graphicscard and for each graphicscard you need
a special driver, which we don't have for Cygwin/XFree86.

No. XVideo is not supported by Cygwin/XFree86.
