    Follow the instructions in that thread to get the 32-bit libvdpau using getlibs.

    That worked, thankyou so much!


    I'm not sure I understand how getlibs works. It doesn't add a visible package to the package system, in Synaptic I still see just the original 64bit libvdpau1 package. I'm guessing I have both 32/64bit now and native 64bit apps like mplayer will still use the 64bit vdpau?

    EDIT: Browser became unresponsive after a while, will reboot and try again.


    Thanks again.

    getlibs just extracts the shared libraries out of the package and places them in /usr/lib32. That violates Debian packaging policy and you might need to do it again if you choose to upgrade the system. It's not the cleanest solution for the 64-bit user (that would be a chroot), but I haven't seen complaints about getlibs borking peoples' systems either (even when we had a 64-bit subforum and a lot more need for getlibs).
