An error was returned by the decoder layer. This may happen for example because of bitstream/data errors during a decode operation. This error may also be returned from VDADecoderCreate when hardware decoder resources are available on the system but currently in use by another process.
VDADecoderCreate failed. err: -12473

Is there any way to really run the h.264 tests to see if they are accelerated?

yep - watch a H.264 video in your preferred browser and check the console. if hardware acceleration is active you'll see something like this -

7/22/11 9:20:03.519 AM [0x0-0xb80b8].org.mozilla.firefox: Successfully connected to the Intel plugin

add to that, processor usage will be very insignificant.

On my 4670, GraphicsEnabler=yes, default FrameBuffer (Flicker), i get this output:

my-mac:Downloads user1$ ./VDADecoderChecker
Successfully connected to the Intel plugin
/SourceCache/AppleGVA/AppleGVA-2.2.69/Sources/Slices/Driver/AVD_loader.cpp: failed to get a service for display 2

I have 2 outputs connected to my monitor, both DVI and VGA, but DVI is not working correctly (and not even detected in mac lion), is this why I have an error message?

In Lion 10.7.1 with a ASUS P8Z68-V PRO (BIOS: 0606. With a edited DSDT with DSDT Auto Patcher), Intel Core i7 2600K and a nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Gigabyte OC) it shows:

Successfully connected to the Intel plugin

I don't know if that means that the GeForce has video acceleration capabilities under Mac, or it means that the Intel HD 3000 have this. But this GPU is only activated under Windows with Lucidlogix when you need to use Quick Sync Video for example, for others things the GeForce is the normal one.
