I think you need mplayer compiled with vdpau support.  On karmic I think
this is the case. You also need support from your video driver and card.  Eg
NVIDIA ion.  Finally I believe that only certain codecs work with this. H264
being one of them .

ok stupid question but do i have to switch the hardware acceleration bit
"on"? Is it automatic?
