    You sure that it's the drivers that need fixing or vainfo? The reason that I ask is that vdpauinfo still works without issue.

    Not sure about the LE but it works fine on ION and the 9400 in a macbook (as well as GTX 480, GTX 275, 8800GT, 8200 IGP).

    You did install libvdpau on the system right since the drivers no longer provide it?

    how is it crippled on Quadro cards?

    No I think we have to see OpenCL added to mplayer etc. CUDE only works on nvidia gfx's, but OpenCL works on almost all vendors.

    Didn't AMD/ATI implement OpenCL in their drivers?

    Yes, they have. There's even a small benchmark.

    OTOH, OpenCL is a standard and CUDA is just a vendor specific API. I'd also prefer OpenCL even it is a bit harder to code.
