Default Re: mplayer vdpau

I apologize if this has been posted already, but I just wanted to draw the attention of any NVIDIA folks to the short initial discussion of the patches by the mplayer folks:

Particularly the following response, from Reimar D÷ffinger:

"Too bad they based it (probably) on vo_xvmc which makes it a horribly bloated monster and quadruplicates the code (I think at least 70 lines are identically duplicated in vo_x11, vo_xv and vo_xvmc and possibly x11_common.c, too, of course all with minor differences and their wholly own set of bugs)."

I'm going to take an experimental cut at adding the patches to the Mandriva packages (in development branch) and see if they work; I have a 9600GT in my HTPC, so I can test.
