Ah, you young people... who don't remember the times when graphic cards used dedicated hardware overlays to display video, instead of this fancy textured video stuff nowadays. You'd get this effect all the time when moving around the mplayer window, except that the default Xv colorkey is blue, not green. It's impossible to fix this, it's just the nature of overlays.

Flash uses vdpau library regardless of GPU driver and also on things like youtube videos (not fullscreen)?

VDPAU is the Video Decode and Presentation API for Unix. Mesa VDPAU indeed only decodes mpeg2, but there's also the presentation part, and it's this part that Flash uses with the r600g driver.
