Sorry for the confusion there, I thought I had to run the intel tool,
but I see vdpauinfo also works on intel (output pasted below)

Which is fine.

Will not rely on binary drivers, so I'm not using nvidia.
So my question was unclear: how do I configure mplayer to continue
playing with -vo gl if -vo vdpau fails?
I understand I can't hardware decode everything, I just wanted it to
fall back to gl by itself instead of dying.
