That HWAccel lacks too many things. One is initialization, another I found
is that applications will never obtain the data decoded if only calling
HWAccel APIs.

The decoder implementation can work fine with mplayer, and I have submitted
the mplayer-part patch to mplayer-devel.
Since that patch is trival, it can be applied as soon as this patch being
applied to ffmpeg.
