I'd like to get VLC "just working" with GPU acceleration. I have an Nvidia 8Series GPU, so VDPAU should work.
I've just about managed to get a build of mplayer working with VLC, but frankly I don't like mplayer and I'd rather use VLC.
I've found various cryptic discussions about how to do this (patch this, patch that and just compile and build, for example) - but I'm not quite advanced enough to use those instructions...
So, does anyone know of the whereabouts of a reliable howto? Has anyone successfully done it that would like to help me write one? Or should I just wait until probably the release after the release after Karmic to get this functionality (yawn)?
