I don't really care what technology is at work as long
as it works. I tought the NVidia error message was
indicative of something failing that should be fixed,
but if you say there is no need to I'm fine with that.
If VDPAU more closely corresponds to my hardware I'd
like to use that, of course, but if it associated with
other problems such as the tty/X crash I can't have
that happening, for sure.

OK, '-vo xv' doesn't give any error messages and so
far hasn't crashed either. I've said that before, but
some time must be the last :)

Thank you!
