I'm yet to see a single report of a crash due to the VDPAU backport on

The most common crashes I've seen are related to OpenGL and the nvidia
GL libraries crashing ; well outside mythtv responsibilities.

run it in gdb, and see in what libraries it crashed ; even if not
compiled with debugging option on, it will tell you which library
cause the crash...

That you don't see it on your other machine without the VDPAU backport
is pretty much irrelevant, because as you say, it's not the same

Why would anyone want to provide support on a version that is now 2
years old and 0.22 is actively maintained ?

time to move on
