Re: mplayer vdpau
Just an FYI on memory usage, turbocache etc.
There are 3 sources of RAM that the GPU can use:
1) RAM physically attached to the GPU
2) System memory dedicated to the GPU's use by BIOS "carve-out", on IGP systems (I believe this covers ION)
3) System memory dynamically allocated to the GPU (i.e. turbocache)
VDPAU fully utilizes 1 and 2, but cannot use 3.
