This beta has been available on Gentoo for a while now but
unfortunately it caused my system to lose input from both
the mouse and keyboard, making it unusable, so I have had to
revert to the previous Beta release from September 27th. 
The I was able to run that Harry Potter trailer and see that
the vdpau was working but very shortly after the trailer
finishes I have no mouse or keyboard in that session. 

Looking forward to this working though,  it will be much
appreciated when it is reliable.
