This is the first error message and, unfortunately, there is not much I can do (how much memory has your 8400M GS?)
[vdpau] Error when calling vdp_video_surface_create: The system does not have enough resources to complete the requested operation at this time.
Note that you could still submit a complete NVIDIA bugreport here as explained in the sticky to let Stephen confirm that this actually is a memory problem.
I've no issues with 720p streams and VDPAU, and the CPU isn't fast enough to play the 1080i streams with ffmpeg's software decoder.
Are you sure?
