I believe your issues are likely related to the split of the vdpau
drivers with the vdpau libraries...

The nvidia drivers install both (for the time being). On ubuntu, you
must install the libvdpau package separately as well as the nvidia
vdpau drivers...

Mythtv only depends on the vdpau libraries, not the drivers. So if you
hadn't installed the drivers, you would get the error you have
reported in your first message
