On my systems (9.0-CURRENT amd64 with binary NVidia driver) it was not 
necessary to copy the vdpau header files. MPlayer seems to find the 
right files.

Instead for me it was necessary to remove old configuration files in 
~/.mplayer and to copy from 
/usr/local/share/mplayer/example/etc/example.conf to gui.conf. After 
that I only need to uncomment 'vo=vdpau' and 

Now I can watch HD movies even with NVidia Quadro NVS 135M on a notebook :-)

Thank you very much,
