New to this community. I hope that someone can help me with the below. I am at the point that I need to get vdpau to work to offload the CPU. No luck.

Last week my new GT610 nvidia card arrived - I had an ever so small hope that my current GT220 had a fault - installed it, and I still cannot get vdpau to work. Hence the GT220 is back in its position.

What I mean is that after installing vdpauinfo the command: ~$ vdpauinfo gives:

display: :0.0
screen: 0 Error creating VDPAU device: 1

The motherboard is a Gigabyte H55M-UD2H with on-board video controller and HDMI connector which I have disabled in the BIOS using the PEG setting. (according to the BIOS this would mean that it will select an external card over the on-board one). I installed Ubuntu 13.04 since I had that on DVD, and downloaded and applied all the updates that came through. Checking the video driver it indicated nouveau - which is "as expected". Upon the prompt to move to 13.10 I did so. I then used the "settings" option right top corner to install the nvidia drivers - I believe I picked the top one which should include the VDPAU capbility. After that finished I stopped the X-server, opened a terminal session and generated a new Xconf file and then tried to start the X-server again. This failed and it required a hard reboot. Machine came back-up. I installed vdpauinfo using apt-get. Then I executed "vdpauinfo" with the result as listed above.Error creating VDPAU device: 1" I have tried this numerous times over the last releases, probably as far back as 10.10, and it never worked. I have trawled the web pages and followed clues and advice to no avail, this is the last piece of the puzzle to have my Ubuntu based mediacentre which works like a dream apart from this bit.

Any help in resolving this or arriving at the point why this cannot work for me is much appreciated.
