Same thing for me. But if set powermizer to max.perf. right after restart/boot/waking up from sleep mode
then vdpau perfomance is always good and it doesn't degrade as I've reported earlier.
It looks like powermizer is the cause: if it goes to "0" mode perfomance then vdpau perfomance also goes down no matter what you do (even setting poewrmizer to max.perf doesn't help) until restart.
