Default 9500gt won't play vdpau

I have a Palit 9500GT Super+ 1GB, (which has DDR2), and am unable to use vdpau with it.

My m/b has a 750a SLI chipset, and using the onboard gpu, I am able to get vdpau working, though not smoothly.

I am using the 185.19 drivers.

With the command
mplayer The\ Simpsons.mpg -vo vdpau -vc ffh264 > ffh264.txt
I see a green screen, then mplayer crashes.

mplayer The\ Simpsons.mpg -vo vdpau -vc ffh264vdpau > ffh264vdpau.txt
gives no mplayer window, and just prints error messages.

I had the following set in my shell.
export VDPAU_TRACE=1

I also have NVRM: Xid errors in my syslog.

Is there something I am overlooking here?
