There is no way to do this automatically.  You can do this manually by
adding the following to your xorg.conf

Section "Extensions"
        Option      "XVideo" "Disable"

Is there a specific reason that you want XVideo disabled?  If XVideo
isn't working then the driver should not advertise it.  If you just
want gstreamer to not use xvimagesink and the application is
configured to use the default videosink you can use this command to
change the default.

`gconftool-2 -g /system/gstreamer/0.10/default/videosink > ximagesink`

change that value to xvimagesink to revert to the default.
