Default mplayer vdpau, x264 works, mpeg12 not

Hi,

I'm using mplayer from debian-multimedia (1:1.0.rc2svn20090301-0.0). VDPAU works for h264 like a charm, but when I try to use -vc ffmpeg12vdpau, I just get rubbish (see screenshot here). Also, when taking a look at top, the CPU-utilization is exactly the same as playing without VDPAU. mplayer itself doesn't drop any errors.
I've tried drivers 180.29-37, all the same result. Any ideas? Oh, right: System is Debian testing/sid with vanila 2.6.28.7 32bit

Then please report your problems at debian-multimedia or try latest mplayer svn.

Does this problem reproduce if you use MPlayer SVN, or use the NVIDIA MPlayer patches? If not, then it's some debian-specific issue.

If so, then please follow the instructions in the sticky about reporting VDPAU problem; we'll need the bug report, VDPAU trace log, the clip you were playing, etc.

I've compiled now from svn and there the problems are gone, h264 AND mpeg12 works with vdpau, so it seems to be really some packaging-problem at debian-multimedia.

I also had this problem with mplayer built from svn 2 weeks ago, now it seems to be fixed...

So it was a general problem in svn... however, I build now my custom .deb from svn, as there is a debian/rules in the sourcetree, this is no magic at all
