[radeon]vdpau had landed on our Radeon!!

Yeah experimental vdpau video playback on radeon is comming... wow!! lol

Already my PPA had applied some packages in development states. and don't forget about installing whole mesa packages and "libg3dvl-mesa".

 and then, install radeon/ati driver, latest libdrm, x11proto-gl from my PPA.

so... today we might have to do tweaks for system a bit. 

1-1. if you tried XvMC, edit the file:
gksu gedit /etc/XvMCConfig
  and add this line:
1-2. set the output in mplayer to play:
mplayer -vo xvmc MEDIAFILE

2-1. if you tried VDPAU, make the symlink within /usr/lib:
cd /usr/lib && sudo ln -sf /usr/lib/vdpau/
2-2.  set the output in mplayer to play:
mplayer -vo vdpau MEDIAFILE
2-3. if you need gnome-mplayer, set the preference like this:

2-3-1. remove any text from "video output":
2-3-2. add the external options in "extra options in mplayer":
    * as far as I know, if I set the output as vdpau in "video output", fails to play any video clips. X( and also needed -vf-clr options.

Today I've succeeded with vdpau in both mplayer/gnome-mplayer on Oneiric... :P
