I'm not sure if the method you proposed would work. I don't know the hwaccel
implementation very well, as I'm a mere user of that feature.

And thus I haven't responded, yet. If you're confident that it will work,
just give it a go. I'm happy to test patches.

Thanks for the compliment.

I never give '+1s', because I prefer to write full sentences, including
some sort of explanation. Doing that requires to first figure out whether it
could work, which can take a lot of time.

I'm fine with any solution that makes VLC's hwaccels work again.
So you can assume there is a general consensus for your suggestion, if it works.

Fine with me.
