Please make sure that you are using latest svn (there have been improvements lately), that you use a decent compiler (I recommend gcc 4.4.3 or icc 11.1.069, to make sure I just tested gcc 3.4.6, and it is slower) and that you are compiling for x86_64 (32 bit mplayer drops frames for me).
If you are still seeing frame-drops (or if you need a fast solution), please test -lavdopts skiploopfilter=all (and please report if you see any difference in the decoded picture!).
For VDPAU, you have to use -lavdopts skipframe=nonref
So, using "-lavdopts skipframe=nonref", does that enable dropping frames, or what does that change?
