Enable the Composite extension, to solve that gray-box issue - I've seen somebody posting about this somewhere, so this is probably a small bug, or sth.
You should be able to use vdpau vo and HW accelerated ffmpeg12vdpau,ffwmv3vdpau,ffvc1vdpau,ffh264vdpau codecs from there on. Edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and change:

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Disable"
EndSection

To:

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Enable"
EndSection

I looked in gmplayer pref and I didn't see that...
So I added "msglevel=9" in "~/.mplayer/config" but all I get in .xsession-errors appears to be a few "!!! [Hook] hook(): title not found" when I use the vdpau codecs.

Enabling the Composite extension fixed the vdpau output but the codecs still won't work...

Hmmm... Dwonload the youtube vid you're trying to play, open a terminal and type mplayer -vc ffmpeg12vdpau,ffh264vdpau,ffwmv3vdpau,ffvc1vdpau, -v /path/to/your_video > ~/mplayerlog.txt

Go to you home dir and throw mplayerlog.txt somewhere :-)

And I nearly forgot put this:
export VDPAU_NVIDIA_9cfhn89fhn=38047802
Into your ~/.bash_profile to make sure that the GPU will be able to accelerate more than one video stream at once!

It works when I do that. Outside of this embedded method vdpau works fine...

Hmmm... What player are you using? Is it gnome-mplayer, or something different? Mind posting ~/.mplayer/config here too?

I am using the mozilla-mplayer plugin in Ubuntu 9.10 64bit and jyavenard's mplayer package. I don't think it uses gmplayer, the script seems to have it's own gui controls.
This is my current config:
Code:
vo=vdpau,
vc=ffmpeg12vdpau,ffwmv3vdpau,ffvc1vdpau,ffh264vdpau,
ao=pulse
demuxer=lavf
cache=8192
msglevel=9
It only works when I comment out the vc line.

There is also a "~/.mplayer/mplayerplug-in.conf" file that the script uses.
This is the contents:
Code:
vo=vdpau
ao=pulse
cachesize=512
cache-percent=5
dload-dir=/home/watto/Desktop
showtime=1
enable-wmp=1
enable-qt=1
enable-rm=1
enable-gmp=1
enable-dvx=0
enable-mpeg=1
enable-mp3=1
enable-ogg=1
enable-midi=0
enable-pls=1
enable-smil=1
enable-helix=1
nomediacache=0
nopauseonhide=0
rtsp-use-tcp=0

Dunno how to help you with this one... I'm using gnome-mplayer which shares it's config with mplayer and works nicely. Why don't you install it too? :-)

Ok I installed it but how do you use it with the embedded player? It still doesn't work...

Make sure the plugin is recognized by Firefox. Type aboutlugins in the address bar and see if a line: mplayerplug-in is now gecko-mediaplayer 0.9.8 is there and you've got all the supported video types listed below.

If it's there then you should be good to go.

Open your ~/.mplayer/config and put this in it:

[gnome-mplayer]
vo=vdpau
ao=pulse
msglevel=all=5
vc=ffmpeg12vdpau,ffh264vdpau,ffwmv3vdpau,ffvc1vdpa u,

And finally run gnome-mplayer open the prefs panel and tick every but the last option on the "Plugin" page.

Ok I had to uninstall the mozilla-mplayer package and install gecko-mediaplayer. Much nicer!
However it still doesn't work...
I checked verbose debugging and I found TONS of these messages in .xsession-errors:
Code:
ERROR: [h264_vdpau @ 0xc3dc00]decoding to PIX_FMT_NONE is not supported.
ERROR: [h264_vdpau @ 0xc3dc00]decode_slice_header error
ERROR: [h264_vdpau @ 0xc3dc00]no frame!
ERROR: Error while decoding frame!
Not sure what order they go in...

Figured out it was the "Deinterlace Video" option under Mplayer. I guess the option is not for the vdpau deinterlacer...
Works great now!
