I'll investigate more.

It still works via mpv so I think it's just that ffmpeg cli
has got strict again WRT the silly situation that vdpau info
reports level 4.1 for my h/w.

I can change this, but last time I looked vdpau spec only went up to
5.1 and I need 5.2 - hence why players and previously ffmpeg cli learned
to ignore that info.
