If I try to use the repo, I just get told the following:

Now, I don't want to fark my system seeing as I use it for my work as well, so I have not forced the installation. Might do a DD of my root partition and give it a try, if no-one has any better suggestions on how I can get this to work?

Looks to me like you have Hardy installed instead of Intrepid. The repositories I pointed to have packages built for Intrepid. Upgrade and enable all repositories (universe, multiverse and restricted).
I said in the first post that the instructions were only for experienced users, so if this scares you I think you should wait until Jaunty is released. I expect vdpau to be standardized by then and support included in mplayer, xine, vlc and possibly gstreamer.

Frafu: I update the thread every time there's new information.
