When you do have time be sure to, as Greg suggested, try and change the number of VDPAU buffers since this also may be the root cause of your problem. This doesn't require compiling anything as 0.22-fixes and later allow this to be set in the filters section of playback profiles. Please reference the following ticket for an explanation of how to change the number of VDPAU buffers.
