I'm not exactly sure what you meant here, but FF_API_VDPAU
is mainly about the (AV_)PIX_FMT_VDPAU_* pixel formats, which
mplayer is still using, e.g. [1].
There are also libavg [2], mlt [3] and handbrake [4].

Considering also FF_API_CAP_VDPAU there is additionally gmerlin-avdecoder [5].
And mplayer is also using this API [6].
