Thanks Michael. I've uploaded a sample file -

I use mplayer with VAAPI patches maintained by Gwenole
(https://gitorious.org/vaapi/mplayer/commits/hwaccel-vaapi) or xbmc
(https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc.git) with VA support configured in

To use mplayer with VA video out -

mplayer -vo vaapi -va vaapi <file name>

I'm using a notebook with Intel Atom and PowerVR video core. But you
can also use Intel core i3/i5 (Sandy/Ivy bridge based) with Integrated
graphics and configure and install libva

You should be able to see the frame drops (about 30% of them) using
this sample file.
