I also was able to install 190.42 via the nvidia ppa and everything worked correctly as well. Have you tried the ppa (https://launchpad.net/~nvidia-vdpau/+archive/ppa)?
Do the standard ubuntu drivers work? (at least it appeared you're running ubuntu)...
Can you post your nvidia-bug report?
I tried using the Ubuntu 9.10 supplied nvidia driver (180), it had the same problem.
I have manually tried the 190.42 packages as well, but they gave the same error.
I tried using the ppa packages, but that didn't make any difference.
If anyone can help, please do!
