IMO, I'm not expecting ffplay to do everything as VLC, mpv does.
I think ffplay is the best and latest minimum example for media playback.

The most important thing is that it's a place where
FFmpeg developers show how to use FFmpeg in right way,
how to replace old API with new API, how to implement things
that should not be put into avformat/avcodec/avfilter.

For hwaccel, actually, I think there is more need to know
how to implement hwaccel in ffplay -- that is to say, using
public API of FFmpeg -- more than playback media
with ffplay's hwaccel feature. VLC and KODI both rewrite
new bit stream filter/convert for Android HW decoder.
