Default Mplayer Error when calling vdp_device_create_x11: 1

So far, this forum has been of great help!

I have a fresh install of Fedora 10, fully updated.

I have the nvidia driver: kmod-nvidia-180.51-1.fc10.1.x86_64

I got Mplayer from svn, compiled and installed with vdpau.

However, when I try to play any videos, Mplayer gives me this:

[vdpau] Error when calling vdp_device_create_x11: 1

I've seen this in the forums, but no resolution.

I have an FX 4600 card.

Thanks!

Quadro FX 4600 doesn't support VDPAU.

Darn! I guess I should have found the list of supported GPUs first, but I saw
this in the FX 4600 features:

NVIDIA PureVideo Technology
NVIDIA® PureVideo™ technology is the combination of high-definition video processors and software that delivers unprecedented picture clarity, smooth video, accurate color, and precise image scaling for SD and HD video content. Features include, high-quality scaling, spatial temporal de-interlacing, inverse telecine, and high quality HD video playback from DVD.

I don't think I have a "supported" GPU in my "stash" of cards. I'll have to look.
Thanks!
