VLC: vdpau_display errors

So, like I've already posted, installed a customized mini Lubuntu from an Ubuntu Mini CD the other on the Dell XPS M1330, after cleaning and de-gunking the hell out of its guts.

Pretty much everything went A Ok with the install, but I've had problems playing videos with VLC.

It refused to play any video (audio was OK) all videos went to a black screen, and generated this continuously onto the log:

vdpau_display error: output surface creation failure: A catch-all error, used when no other error code applies.

The solution?
Set VLC to use OpenGL video output.
