Hello Alessandro,

Thanks for the heads-up!

Vincent, Andreas,

I have updated the libvdpau git repo with the new release [1]. I have
tested the amd64 and i386 packages in Jessie, and they seem to work just
fine with vdpauinfo and VLC.

Could you please review and do a new upload, when you have time?


Tomorrow I'll look into backporting the fix to Wheezy and Squeeze.

Kind regards,
Luca Boccassi
