 When using VDPAU, this particular file doesn't display properly. The
 picture is mostly black, with some green squares appearing from time to
 The behaviour changes depending on the VDPAU drivers used (nouveau, nvidia
 or AMD OSS)

 the issue can be reproduced with MPlayer 1.1-4.8 (C) 2000-2012 MPlayer
 Team (Ubuntu 12.04), when using:
 mplayer -vo vdpau -vc ffmpeg12vdpau -demuxer lavf Ondine_clip.mpg

 using mplayer's default demuxer, it will play fine

 Interestingly, using the new hwaccel VDPAU API with nvidia proprietary
 drivers will play just fine.

 gives a corrupted video (albeit all green this time).

 This issue is seen with some DVDs, other samples are available if
