"Failed to open VDPAU backend..." issue



I've been getting this prompt whenever I play movies using Gnome MPlayer.

Failed to open VDPAU backend libvdpau_nvidia.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Today I searched for solution, and I found this:

* Open Edit -> Preferences in the GNOME Player menubar
* Select the "Player" tab
* Select "x11" for the Video Output
* Close preferences and try to open the video file again.

The problem solved.
