Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 500
So absurd that no user reacts on the EMGD driver. Waste of time, obviously...

Tested many GMA500 drivers during the last few days.
IEGD10.3, IEGD10.3.1, IEGD10.3.3, EMGD1.5, latest official 3.3.0 (1018)
For WindowsXP IEGD10.3.1 seems to be the best driver.
FullHD1080p playback with MediaPlayerClassic, OpenGL acceleration (tested with Stellarium), and finally energy-saving functions do work (display timeout after xx minutes).
IEGD10.3.3 does the same as IEGD10.3.1 but you have to manually copy over the "iegd.inf" file from previous 10.3.1 version --> read here.
EMGD1.5 drivers worked as IEGD10.3 but the uninstallation process wasn't easy. Utilities for gamma correction, screen rotation and screen brightness are installed automatically with this driver version.
Had to remove all installed drivers & shell extensions/utilities (inside display properties they remain active while changing to other drivers...) manually.
Official 3.3.0 (1018) has no OpenGL acceleration and while opening 1080p media files in MediaPlayerClassic WindowsXP goes BSOD and restarts.
With all drivers FullHD1080p acceleration for Flash10.1/2 movies won't work; dunno if Adobe ever will support WindowsXP...
Tested newest Flash 10.2.161.23 version only - if anyone knows how to enable Flash hardware acceleration (Windows XP only, 7 worked fine) with older display drivers / Flash versions please let us know !
Same with hibernation function: IEGD10.3 boots straight into black screen (you have to manually restart your system), EMGD1.5, IEGD10.3.1 and IEGD10.3.3 instead do a reboot...
