I have finally written a minimalistic VDPAU-based backend for VA API. 
Nothing really advanced yet but enough to play MPEG-2 and H.264 videos 
through VA API and an nVidia card. So, you can now play with it too. ;-)

Only the VDPAU backend is GPL'ed and available at this time:

You will also need our libVA instead of upstream's:

The extensions will be integrated upstream later when support for the 
"other" APIs is fully completed.
