I have 'xorg-edgers' repository enabled. Two to three weeks ago after update, playing video through 'x-video' had become impossible: X server freezes, entire screen starts to blink slowly, then I have to reboot. I'm on Intel GMA video (Sandy Bridge embedded video). Does anybody experience similar problem? Is there bug reported on this?

What you experience is expected when using pre-release and experimental drivers (see also this question). You should file a bug on the driver you have problems. – Takkat Dec 30 '11 at 14:44
