Default Re: mplayer vdpau

Using mplayer with vdpau support I see sometimes a very blocky distorted image when playing h264 movies. I use mplayer-vdpau-3263604 on Ubuntu 8.10 x86_64 on an Asus M3N78-EM which has a 8200 chipset and a 8300 GPU.
mplayer exited just now with: Error 2 at libvo/vo_vdpau.c:1055

This is my full mplayer output:
$ mplayer -vc ffh264vdpau hd1080-walle.mkv

I'm quite happy with my setup and with the vdpau support: mplayer only uses 5% cpu, X around 1% with this 1080p movie. With the normal mplayer it uses > 70% and X around 25%, but then without any distortions...

If anyone needs more info, like a screenshot of the distortions, I'd be happy to send it.
