And keep in mind that the -vo is just telling mplayer what to use to
render the video, not what to use to decode the video.
If you want it to use VDPAU to decode the video, then also specify
that on the command line (or in a configuration file) or it will just
fallback and use software decoding
An example might look something like:
mplayer -vo vdpau -vc ffh264vdpau,ffmpeg12vdpau,ffvc1vdpau,ffwmv3vdpau,

No, MythTV does not use mplayer for playback.
MythVideo can use an external player for playback, but the Internal
player for recordings does not use mplayer.
With that said, the place to specify what to use is in the playback
portion of the Setup>TV Settings>Playback>Page-3 (Playback Profiles)
Choose one of the VDPAU profiles, and if you want different settings
then the default ones provide, your better off creating a new profile
and defining what you want it to do. But for VDPAU at least set the
renderer and decoder to use VDPAU.
