Hm. There's a xine-vdpau version available --- I downloaded and
compiled it, but kaffeine needs to be compiled to work with it, and I
couldn't compile kaffeine:

lee@yun:~/Inst/vdpau/kaffeine/kaffeine-1.0-pre2$ cmake src/
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:29 (kde4_add_executable):
  Unknown CMake command "kde4_add_executable".

CMake Warning (dev) in CMakeLists.txt:
  No cmake_minimum_required command is present.  A line of code such as

    cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8)

  should be added at the top of the file.  The version specified may be lower
  if you wish to support older CMake versions for this project.  For more
  information run "cmake --help-policy CMP0000".
This warning is for project developers.  Use -Wno-dev to suppress it.

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

Then I googled about that error message, and I might be missing some
kde or qt things. But to get kde to work at all, I had to use one or
another package from unstable or experimental because the dependencies
in testing were broken. I'm not sure what I'm missing for compiling
kaffeine, but it seems that I might mess up things even more trying to
install those, so I gave up at that point.

Apparently, mplayer is supposed to be able to use vdpau, and 'mplayer
-vo help' lists it. But when telling it to use it, CPU load during
playback isn't lower than with kaffeine: I doubt that mplayer does
actually use vdpau --- or if it does, then why is the CPU load still
high? How can I tell for sure if mplayer does use vdpau?

Hm. Is mplayer eventually able to play HDTV with sound? I couldn't get
it to work with the TV card at all because I couldn't find out what
the format of the channels.conf it needs is and how to create one.
