no, no one but us chickens here.

vdpau = officially sanctioned and supported by nvidia, has most

vaapi = official intel one. also turned into a wrapper for vdpau and
xvba. supports intel, ati, and nvidia? (not yet merged with mplayer)

xvba = official ati one.

you should be asking which implementation plays the most types of
codecs with the most types of resolutions at the least amount of
cpu/wattage. or with the least problems (e.g. using hwaccel while
running a 3d composite desktop).

for that you'd have to find someone who has used all three extensively.
