No, this is a frontend only.

What SVN revision are you using ?

You should be seeing something like this in the log (with -v playback):
"Forcing decode extra audio option on. XvMC/VDPAU playback requires it."

When using VDPAU ; with a recent VDPAU patch (that is around 6 months
old) ; the decode extra audio is irrelevant as it is automatically be

So if you have to check "decode extra audio" to prevent playback
issues it means one of two things:
1- You're not using VDPAU
2- You're using an old (e.g. really old) version of the VDPAU patches.
