I noticed in logs VDPAU support, then I tried compile mesa with vdpau, 
enable it and of course it was useless. Anyway, I'm not alone, when you 
check forums, you'll notice other guys also tried.

If it could be accepted at this moment or re-enabled r300 support it 
would be great.
As I understood, VDPAU for r300 would support only MPEG2 (not much used 
these days) and Marek marked it as useless. Any comments on that?

If there will be r300 vdpau support, I'll update patch to disable it 
only for < r300
