Package vdpauinfo is required by mplayer-wrapper.pl in order to check the user's system for vdpau capability when determining mplayer parameters. At the moment, vdpauinfo has to be installed by hand.

I'm not intimately familiar with the script, but what if the user does not have a VDPAU-capable video card? Would an optional dependency on vdpauinfo be better?

The script depends on it, in that it makes a call to vdpauinfo (or will, once I update it). Unless it's a dependency of the package containing mplayer-wrapper.pl, then nobody will know to install it. It causes no harm for people who don't have vdpau-capable hardware.

Ok, no problem. Do you have an updated script I can add. Rather just update this once. :)

No update yet. I'm adding a feature to auto-crop old-style "widescreen" 4:3 videos, usually MPEG2. I'll push the new code to my github repo when done: http://github.com/Human/mythic.tv-contributed-code
