AFAIK xine-plugin normally refers to vdr-xine, but I think you mean
xineliboutput, since you also mention vdr-sxfe.

Check the following:

1. Make sure you have a xine-lib which supports vdpau. Since you seem
to be using xine-lib 1.2, it might be best to get the current hg in
case you haven't yet.

2. Make sure you have everything installed from nvidia drivers pov.
The simplest choice is to install manually the driver which nvidia
provides on their web page. But if you use a distribution package,
make sure you install the vdpau library as well.

3. Check that you have configured xineliboutput with vdpau enabled.

If you do all of the above steps properly, you should have no problems
with vdpau.
