Bug reports on 0.21-fixes with vdpau  have never really been welcomed
by the devs, as it was an unofficial backport and the devs were not
wanting to be distracted from 0.22.

Nevertheless JYA and others did unofficially support vdpau in
0.21-fixes both here, in ubuntu forums and possibly elsewhere.

However I now know that JYA has moved on to 0.22, and he is also now a
dev. Thats not to say you might not get some help with 0.21-fixes with
vdpau, but I equally suspect thet such help will consist of "upgrade
to 0.22 and see if the improved code there works for you"
