Default Checking if vdpau is working on Linux using SMPlayer


I am running SMPlayer Version: 0.6.9 (SVN r3447) Using MPlayer SVN r31722 on Linux Mint 9 x64. My laptop has a nvidia 9300GM graphics card and I have the latest driver from nvidia installed. I have SMPlayer set to use vdpau. How do I know that vdpay is actually woring? I do not know if it helps, but this is part of a typical log when playing video:
