Yes, but if you look closer, you will find that these "decoders" only output to
PIX_FMT_VDPAU_* (instead of PIX_FMT_YUV420P), meaning they can only be used by
software that supports displaying this "pixel formas) with the "P"resenation
part of the VDPAU drivers (MPlayer and one or two media centers).

See http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.video.mplayer.user/67446/focus=67454 for
a detailed answer on a very similar question.
