    The patch improves performance by enabling hardware acceleration when playing hi-def WMV movies , provided you have the appropriate graphics card.
    It does indeed improve performance on these.
    Note that you normally need to install patch KB891122 before going ahead with KB888656

    I think I'll try it on my ATI 9800Pro

    Update: ATI have now published this update

    There is also the MC Catalyst 5.6 download here

    The sessions timed out, sorry!.

    Basically you need 5.6 and a couple of MS updates. The instructions are on the ATI site
