Where is this video hosted? What resolution is it? Could you post a screenshot of this same video in Windows? This image looks like flash video. The quality is just about on par for VP6 encoded flash video at a relatively low resolution and bitrate, and I wouldn't expect it to look any better, regardless of which OS you're viewing it in.

Perhaps your grapics driver has some sort of image "enhancement" running that helps to smooth images like this somewhat. This feature may or may not be available for the linux driver . . . you'll have to check with ATI for that.
