Gah, you are right, my apologies for threadjacking.

Anyway, to bring it somewhat back on topic, my 8500 mythbuntu 
(/etc/issue = Ubuntu 8.04.2) based FE/BE system pauses every so often 
when playing the birds bluray clip, so I am going to be looking at VDPAU 
as well.  It's only a matter of time before someone figures out a way to 
play a bluray under Linux IMO, so may as well start planning for it.
