Yep that was the problem, MPEG and H264 played fine.

First impressions:

MPEG: - normal mplayer with xv output used about 10% cpu
- mplayer with vdpau and relative coded used about 3% cpu

H264: - normal mplayer used about 66% cpu
- mplayer with vpdau used *just* 10% !!!!!!!!!!!!

That's a hell of a difference! Can't wait to see the patches in mainline mplayer

BTW, I have 2 x 8800GT 512MB cards.
