I'm trying to get the latest mplayer installed with vdpau support. Haven't had any luck so far.
I found a PPA that says it works and I want to install it. I added the PPA to my apt.sources and did an update.
I just wanted to know, how do I know that I'm now installing the mplayer package from the PPA, and not Ubuntu's standard repositories? From what I see I just install the same package using
apt-get install mplayer.
How do I know which mplayer I'm getting? Where do I specify what takes precedence?
