Default mplayer vdpau

I have an acer aspire revo (windows version reloaded with umbuntu jaunty) wich has the Nvidia ion gpu and intel Atom processer.
I can sucessfully use xbmc and enable vdpau and all is well, upto 30% cpu usage on killa.mkv 1080p clip
but i can't get any clip to use vdpau under mplayer
I'm using the latest nvidia drivers 180.60
also i have patched mplayer with the mplayer-vdpau-3532130.tar.bz2 from nvidia ftp site (

all i get are Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device now i can play the file not using vdpau but with 100% cpu so thats a no go

can anyone help


terminal screen:
