At least on pre-Fermi GPU's, the limit for H264 is approximately 1080@50 (probably depending on the bit-rate).
Just tried the 'killa birds sampler' h.264 and that runs fine at 1080p 50fps (supposedly 100mbps+)
It works fine for me, but I believe it shows significantly less than 50 frames per seconds.
Do you have any idea why Sync to VBlank is killing my performance for 60fps video?
I already tried to explain to you that the primary reasons for your problems are 1) you try to play 60Hz content on a 50Hz screen and 2) MPlayer does not support automatic framedrop in this case, you have to manually activate it (in which case your use-case works fine for me).
