Unfortunately mpv cannot play all stuff mplayer(-vaapi) can!
I have been using mplayer-vaapi for years for watching SAT-TV over my LAN (video streaming from my sat receiver. The mplayer is able to play all channels my receiver provides.
I tried yesterday to use mvp instead of mplayer and I found several channels mpv could not play. Unfortunately vlc seems to have similar limitations like mpv.
So it's really a pity mplayer-vaapi is going to disappear ;-)

@iegubkin: smplayer >= 14.9.0.6690 can be used with mpv and the latter supports VAAPI; in the general options you set "mpv" as the executable and then in the advanced settings you add the "--hwdec=auto" option to be passed to mpv.

Also see the wiki page: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Mpv

I don't know why mplayer hasn't added VAAPI support yet (there were discussions in the past); mplayer-vaapi hasn't been developed since mid–2013.

@foutrelis "I feel that this package is no longer needed and I've personally switched to using mpv with smplayer for VAAPI support."

I don't understand your use of "smplayer for VAAPI support." Isn't smplayer a front-end for mplayer? I thought the standard mplayer package (currently 37379-1) doesn't support vaapi. Isn't smplayer using mplayer 37379-1 for its backend? If you're not using mplayer-vaapi anymore how can you have "smplayer for VAAPI support"? Are you using libvdpau-va-gl?

Do you happen to know why mplayer hasn't officially adopted vaapi support? Also do you know if mplayer-vaapi (https://gitorious.org/vaapi/mplayer) is still being developed (I noticed yesterday, for exapmple, that its build doesn't support VP9 yet)? Thanks for your past work on mplayer-vaapi. It was appreciated.
