XBMC 21190
Nvidia 185.18.14
Ubuntu 9.04

After watching a video (sometimes a few) using vdpau, I cannot watch anything afterwards. The audio plays, but of course no video comes until I reboot. I can watch 1080, 720, or sd content..but eventually the video fails to play. I did not have this issue with a revision of xbmc from late march and the current nvidia driver from that time period. A partial log is linked, if anyone can help I'd appreciate it.

Paste the full log. Also see the "how to post a problem in a useful manner" sticky for other things we like to know.

The message that you pasted is just normal VDPAU creation.

I'd however suggest that (apart from including a complete logfile) you ensure that you have allocated 512MB to your GPU in the BIOS - assuming it's an integrated GPU which I cant tell from what you've posted!

This one is from a fresh boot... no other video has been played or attempted to play. This particular video is one I have watched in the past.
