Question Mplayer VDPAU and Xinerama

HELLo!

I was wondering what the status with VDPAU and Xinerama was, and if there's any ETA on when this combination will be supported?
Reason I ask is that I was presented with the following error, when trying to play H.264 content. Despite the fact that VDPAU was supported nicely, using the latest drivers, and mplayer compiled without issues.
Code:
Matroska file format detected.
VIDEO:  [avc1]  1904x1072  24bpp  23.976 fps    0.0 kbps ( 0.0 kbyte/s)
VDPAU capture: Enabled
vdp_imp_device_create_x11(0x157d6a0, 0, -, -)
VDPAU nvidia: Error detected 0 5324
VDPAU nvidia: Backtrace:
--: /usr/lib/libvdpau_nvidia.so [0x7f8f108eb000] DSO load base
00: /usr/lib/libvdpau_nvidia.so [0x7f8f108f0348] vdp_imp_device_create_x11
    -> 1
[vdpau] Error when calling vdp_device_create_x11: 1
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device.
Normal invocation works fine, except that it somehow uses the ffmpeg libraries by default even though I used "--disable-x264"...

TwinView is not a viable solution for me, as I have one 17" and one 21" monitor. Both requiring different resolution and refresh rates. Using multiple X-servers lacks some of the functionality, to be an attractive solution.
So, what I'm left with right now is the option of spawning a whole new X-server for playing videos. With its own configuration. At least, I reckon that'll work. Hope that it won't be too long until Xinerama is supported by VDPAU though.

Please..?

Happy codin'!
