The VDPAU interface is only available for the x86 architecture.  On ARM, 
nVidia and several other manufacturers have embraced the OpenMAX 
specification (from the OpenGL people) for media acceleration.  There is 
interest among some of the video developers in adding support for it in 
MythTV, and at least one who has considerable experience using it, but 
no work as yet of actually implementing it.
