    Wasn't that reverted later?

      You don't need to use sudo to run vdpauinfo - it's best not to use sudo unless needed

        Seems to have been reenabled.
        At least it works fine on a fresh 14.04 install over here.

          Yeah, that seems about right. I noticed that libvdpau1-mesa-drivers showed up on my machines recently (mostly 13.10-based). That combined with kernel 3.13 made my llano-based HTPC much happier (DPM + VDPAU = Happy).

            Code:
            apt-get install libvdpau1-drivers-mesa
            For VA-API support also install vdpau-va-driver and add
            Code:
            VDPAU_DRIVER=r600 #or nouveau/radeonsi
            LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME=vdpau
            to your .xsession

            See https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...a/+bug/1002224
            Thank you, it was renamed to 'mesa-vdpau-drivers' for the record.

            So happy they finally included it in a mainstream repo, OIBAF is awesome, but PPAs are generally annoying long-term.
