I've just sent ffmpeg to our PMBS, ffmpeg has dumped version to 0.5 
(there are no official releases, there's no 0.5 tarball arround, but 
that's more "release" then we has since many years) in the release 
notes. I'll build it with vdpau support. I hope this will help many 
projects to take profit of hardware encoding speedup.

I'll take a loook at the xine patches to use vdpau next weekend...
Maybe I'll add a 1.2 xine-lib path inside packman (all the patches are 
for the development and not the stable branche of xine-lib).
