(CCed the nvidia-driver maintainer)
I think modifying the nvidia-driver port to install the header files into a 
different location would be preferable. But I haven't really looked at the

Unfortunately, no. In order to get hardware acceleration, you also need to 
specify -vc depending on the type of video. From the man page:

vdpau (with −vc ffmpeg12vdpau, ffwmv3vdpau, ffvc1vdpau or ffh264vdpau)
