I've been doing some initial work on this which can be found at

I've implemented 3 elements.

1. vdpauyuvvideo -- takes video/x-raw-yuv and outputs video/x-vdpau-video
2. vdpauvideoyuv -- takes video/x-vdpau-video and outputs video/x-raw-yuv
3. vdpaumpegdec  -- proof of concept mpeg decoder which is capable of
outputting "recognizable" video from some files :).

The mpeg decoder (which is kindof useless anyway) is based pretty much on
guesswork and therefore it's a wonder it even gives "recognizable" output.

To test the "vdpaumpegdec" element you can try the following pipeline:
"gst-launch filesrc location=/path/to/mpeg/file ! mpegvideoparse ! vdpaumpegdec
! vdpauvideoyuv ! xvimagesink".
