The source patches and patched sources for VDPAU are not distribution 
specific and can be found at:

mythtv 0.21 patch: <http://www.avenard.org/files/mythtv-vdpau/>
mythtv trunk source: <http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/browser/trunk/>
mplayer patch/source <ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/vdpau/>
xine source <svn://jusst.de/xine-vdpau/>
ffmpeg source <http://svn.ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg/>

I have had no trouble compiling them for MiniMyth.

Pre-built VDPAU enabled packages for specific distributions are another
