I think my original post should have been clear enough. I said that such
content should be playable on Linux (with multithreaded software
decoding + vdpau output, though of course it depends somewhat on things
like bitrate), but gave reasons why trying to do that with MPlayer from
svn is likely to fail. Then I explained what _can_ be used to play it:
build a player from mplayer-build.git.

Assuming you have all build dependencies installed these commands should
be enough to get a working player:

$ git clone git://repo.or.cz/mplayer-build.git
$ cd mplayer-build/
$ ./init --shallow
$ make -j 6

And now this should work without further configuration:
$ mplayer/mplayer /path/1920x1080-60fps.mkv
