I took a different strategy: rather than adjusting the patches to apply
to the version of mplayer we currently have in rpmfusion, I adjusted the
rpmfusion spec to build the version of mplayer which the libva patches
and ffmpeg-mt are happy to work with, if you follow :) Since picking an
mplayer version is a pretty arbitrary sport, and since this stuff is not
likely to land until F13, and since we'll probably want to go with a
later version of mplayer in F13, I don't feel particularly inclined to
spend time porting the libva patches / ffmpeg-mt to play nice with an
older version of mplayer, to be honest. It feels like it'd be wasted
If you'd like to update MPlayer in the devel branch to current snapshot
and enable vdpau support, then by all means, go ahead. Feel free to fix
any trivial bugs from the bugzilla as well. I'm still quite short on time
these days, so any help is welcome.

All things considered I agree. I'd suggest that, fairly early in the F13
cycle, we bump to a then-current mplayer snapshot, with the libva
patches included. Assuming I've got libva into the repository by then.
Sounds like a good plan to me.
