Well, at least that's how I use it most of the time and it's working 
brilliantly. To me, vdpau is the best thing that's ever happened to the 
htpc world next to VDR of course... When it comes to xine-lib, I must 
say that XBMC uses vdpau in a better way. VDR HD recordings look a lot 
better when played back in XBMC than with  xineliboutput. But for anyone 
interested, xineliboutput HD OSD works as of wednesdays cvs.
