Scratch this question.  Mplayer on fc12 comes with VDPAU support if you have
the right card drivers installed, you just need to use the -vo vdpau switch
when you call it.

Another question, tho:  MythTV uses mplayer for playback, no?  If so how can
I give it an identical set of arguments to what MythTV is giving it to play
back a file?  I'm trying to see if it can reproduce the same lockup I'm
getting from MythTV.
