Add VDPAU support to MythTV 0.21

UPDATE: Have used the below repo and now have VDPAU working nicely in MythTV and mplayer. CPU usage stays below about 10% even on HD content. Though I’ve not tried any long HD content yet, on myth stuff the fan never spins up so it stays nice and quiet. Sweet.

Useful page about backporting the VDPAU to the current myth release, rather than running the more recent (unstable) 0.22. Dunno how well it works though, and there might be EPG issues.

The ubunuto repo below also has nvidia drivers, the 185s are in the unstable/testing part. Probably need them for the ION to work well I think.
