I have no idea where to post this. I hope people will find this here and find it useful.

As reported at http://www.hkepc.com/forum/viewthread.php?tid=1385589 and http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showp...&postcount=498 I can run mplayer -vo vaapi -va vaapi but then everyone's skin is blue. Very nice effect

You want mplayer -vf rgb2bgr=swap,scale -vo vaapi -va vaapi
