Default vdpau in macosx?

Hi I have seen that vdpau provides a windows independant api and a X11 dependant api..
Since in Mac there isn't avaiable an open accelerated video decoding (GPU) API like DXVA in Windows and now VDPAU in windows.. there a plans for releasing vdpau for MACOS X?
This can make good use of the efforts in patching mplayer and the ffmeg library to be used in a MACOS mplayer..
I have seen in mac that GeforceVA.kext exposes some functions for accessing the NVIDIA video processor but that seems not open API avaiable for exploiting it..

There are currently no plans to ship VDPAU for MacOS X. Sorry.

aren't apple working on their own acceleration architecture within QT?

Of course you're going to have to wait for apple to finish with their effort. Unfortunately you won't know if it will be as flexible or available to everyone like vdpau (the price you pay for apple)...
