I've rebuilding ffmpeg one or two times a month from cvs. We had trouble 
with some builds in the past, that's true, but vlc is one thing I'm 
testing before I'm uploading a new package. For myselfe I'm rebuilding 
daily fresh to see, what changes.

When there will be a official tarball, I'll update once again. SVN is 
allready past 0.5, so I'm not sure, there realy will be a release

I don't have a GPU which supports vdpau (end even if I had, I wouldn't 
use it as longe there's no free driver which supports it), but I've 
tested the vdpau supported codecs on my non vdpau computers. It doesn't 
have any negativ effect (it workes like before and I can't see any 
speed differences), so why not including it?
