Default VDPAU regression, what to do?


I use the VDPAU acceleration of my nvidia Quadro FX 570M. It worked flawlessly for a long time, until nvidia driver 260 came out. Back then going back to earlier versions helped, but they already started to need patching for newer kernels.
Now, last version I tried was 290.10 of said driver. I still cannot watch 1080p with a current driver. It's just too slow. 720p videos work with very little CPU usage.

Is this a known issue? I remember that back then there were several reports. Is there a solution or possibility of further debugging?

The software I use: Arch Linux, kernel version 3.2.5, nvidia driver 290.10, mplayer, mplayer2 and VLC.
Hardware: The Quadro FX has 256 MB of dedicated memory, and 512 MB of virtual memory (reported in nvidia-settings).

Thanks in advantage,
