it doesn't seem your answer relates to his question. While there has
been a lot of talk about the VDPAU support in LINUX, this guy here,
he's asking about the VDPAU support carrying over to WINDOWS. I
haven't seen ANY talk of this yet, though I may have missed it.

There is a response in regards to MythPlayer for windows planning
directx support, but that doesn't sound like the MythTV windows port
that OP is talking about either.
