Good news are cpu is indeed taking the backseat and lets the gpu do the job
Bad news are : it's not working more than some seconds (15 to 40...) regardless of the source (tried half a dozen 720p and one hdlite (1440*1080) tvsource, all h264)
needless to say the same mplayer without vdpau codec (-vc ) runs the same files without problem.

when it crashes, I often see that error on terminal
Error 2 at libvo/vo_vdpau.c:1052: 0.000 0/ 0 2% 0% 0.3% 4 0

sometimes I can't even check terminal error msgs as the crash just...hangs the system and I have to reset the computer...

If someone has an idea ...
Any luck on this?

I'm getting this same exact error. The video plays for about 15 minutes, then quit with the above error.

I'm currently still using 180.22 drivers.

*EDIT* I tried your video and it play back fine for me.
