Can you try reseating the card, updating the BIOS. Is your system correctly cooled? If anything is overclocked, please revert that and retry.

Hope this helps...
Seems to a problem with the 9500GT card (Gainward 9500GT 512MB).
I swapped my 9600GT and 9500GT, the 9600GT works fine in the new comp and VDPAU fails in the same way with the 9500GT in my old comp.

Stephen, should i return my 9500GT and expect a replacement (same model) to function properly ? Or is it a risk that all 9500GTs have this problem ?

Has anyone else VDPAU problems with 9500GT ?
