I had some frustration too and didn't find any readme but then I saw Doxyfile. Ran "doxygen Doxyfile" and the generated documentation was very good! Followed the instructions, and it works! Although there are 2 problems:
1. Plays at 3-4 times the normal speed. One of the todo's listed in xvbaplay.c is to have it play at the proper framerate, so that's explained.
2. ATI catalyst tear free option affects video playback(for this and lots of other video playback as well) in catalyst 11.4 in Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit (which I'm currently using). Without tear free, works quite well.
