But that code still gets compiled, so when I try building mplayer
with a FFmpeg version without FF_API_CAP_VDPAU I get the following error:
libvo/vo_vdpau.c:177:34: error: array type has incomplete element type
 static struct vdpau_render_state          surface_render[MAX_VIDEO_SURFACES];

Do you mean that this code can just be removed?

Best regards,
