    Ah, that explains why. Thanks for clarifying.

    Check the version of that package. Then check the revision upstream mplayer is at. That's why I said "update the code for svn". Well, mplayer-vaapi isn't that old, but still, someone needs to port the vaapi bits to latest svn and post to the mplayer-dev-eng mailing list. Bonus points if you also port it to mplayer2.

    You're confusing a few things here. The announcement talks about the ffmpeg aac decoder, which is a totally different from faac, an independent encoder with a non-free license.

    Isn't FAAC license proprietary?

    Yes, this insane forking mess should be correctly explained. Differences, activity stadistics, tests and more.

    If you want VA-API to ever happen on mplayer or mplayer2, step up.
