I will keep you informed in this thread of possible VDPAU support.

Cool. That would be a great new feature.

I am very excited to read in private emails that some work has started and that this could be easier than previously though to add VDPAU. Stay tuned. Dave, can you explain the plans shortly. Everyone is waiting for hardware decoding like kids on a Christmas eve.
