DescriptionWhen setting the HW device to "vdpau" (or when rendering with cin_hw_dev=vdpau) png images are not displayed in composer and also not rendered.

Fixed in the latest GIT checkin. I "think" this error is probably in the end of April builds in case anyone asks.
Included in the Ubuntu 16 build at:

Good thing you reported this -- gg was unaware that it is not correctly reverting to the software.
This hardware acceleration needs more testing for decode.

Yes, me too.
Pngs are not supported by vdpau; but I think any image format is not supported.
I think GG is still working on the problem of displaying files.
