The upcoming patches add VA API support to FFmpeg. They rely on libVA  
changes that are not upstream yet, though the maintainer agreed to  
integrate them for a future release. Those changes are actually  
extensions (new fields) to suit the needs of XvBA and VDPAU backends.  
You can get the current libVA patchset here: <http://www.splitted-desktop.com/~gbeauchesne/libva/ 

People willing to test the whole thing can try a VA API enabled MPlayer:

A Sample VDPAU backend for VA API is also available with sources:

VA API currently covers the following codecs:
- MPEG-2
- MPEG-4
- H.263 (MPEG-4 part-2 short video header format)
- H.264
- VC-1
