That's not MythTV who changed it ...
It was different with the original nVidia ffmpeg patch (nvidia's mplayer-vdpau-3139462 were using data), and provided even in the current source, it is still copyright nVidia: I assumed things didn't fundamentally change.
The key point, is that line is different for other earlier codecs like XvMC.
All the others use data only, but VDPAU uses data... Why it uses data, I have no idea
Very inconsistent, and as I can't find documentation anywhere, it's really not obvious what one should use.
Sorry if I offended anyone, it was late and I was frustrated.
