Re: VDPAU Error: DISPLAY PRE-EMPTED
Those logs show some kind of issue processing the video bitstream. There have been many improvements to this area of the driver since 180.60. Can you please try the latest 190.* driver from the FTP site? It may very well solve the issue.
If that doesn't help, I think we'll need to see a sample video file; see the VDPAU sticky for upload details. It'd also help if you could test MPlayer with VDPAU and the same file, and see if that has the same issue,
