Hi Tom,

I went with XvMC because it has a lot of client support as you said. I
think it would be immediately useful to a lot of people, plus there
are lots of resources out there. Implementing VAAPI is on my list of
nice-to-haves if I have time, but at the very least I'll try to keep
the code modularized enough to make a VAAPI implementation as painless
as possible. I think having VAAPI support would kick start things and
get more clients to support it, so it's definitely worth the effort.
If I have time at towards the end to do a basic VAAPI implementation
I'll definitely keep your offer in mind.

Thank you very much,
