Hey guys,

sorry for the clean thread but I thought I would tell you that Mplayer and SMPlayer have recently been packaged with VDPAU capabilities with the latest snapshots built for Karmic. As of me writing this about five hours ago.

Heres the PPA for you:

thanks! using this updated smplayer i was finally able to play my 1080p movies without 99% cpu usage and choppiness - in fact, just 25% cpu or so and the movie doesn't go choppy all the time like it did!
