Re: Mplayer - vdpau - composite disabled screen flashing
The 9500 GT seems to handle 1080p stuff much better than the 8400GS did. Overall, much better experience with VDPAU now.
In a side note, I installed the 8400GS in a XP box. The 182.xx drivers also misread the onboard memory, and list it as 512 meg. Older Linux drivers listed the card with 256meg (177.xx)
