Yep, I think VLC has the best VAAPI support, so if you use VLC for
everything it should be OK - not having used VAAPI I can't say for
sure though.

mplayer does not support VAAPI - there were some initial patches
provided which are abandonware as far as I can see, and the devs do
not appreciate questions about it - I think they do not like that
there is this VAAPI tree which builds 'mplayer' but is missing several
thousands bug fixes that are in mplayer tip.
