installed after forcing the nvidia drivers to version 3.  Also, since it's
saying nvidia-185-libvdpau still has libvdpau.so.1 in it I'd guess you're
back on the mythbuntu version 9 one.  It's hard to say, but I'd bet that you
didn't lock the driver versions to 3 after you downgraded and synaptic
pushed them back up to version 9.  After that it's all downhill I'm afraid.

The good news is you can always just uninstall libvdpau1, upgrade to the
mythbuntu driver  versions again (although I suspect you have them installed
now already), and move back to the mythbuntu myth packages.  Then you can
try again.
