Default vdpau issues (Canon HF20)

Hoping someone can shed some light.

I just bought a Canon HF20 this weekend which shoots tremendous looking video. The format is the AVCHD with MXP 24mbps. I can stream straight to PS3 via mediatomb and it looks great. I cannot however for the life of me get this to view in linux. I have tried mplayer, vlc, etc. The below command runs, but things are horribly choppy and cpu gets crushed.

mplayer -fps 60 -ao sdl -vo vdpau -demuxer lavf -ni -vc ffh264vdpau /media/data/Incoming/Canon\ Test/

Not starting a war here, but I dual boot win 7 x86_64 and I rebooted and the videos run great with no hit to CPU. What am I doing wrong and can someone shed some light on what I may be missing. . . Thank you
