I think the idea is that he'd like to get away from using xinelib
altogether in place of something else (ffmpeg). I'm not sure how
using gstreamer, that uses xineliboutput, that uses xinelib would
provide that. However, it sounds like gstreamer can just be forced to
use ffmpeg so that may be a solution. So you're suggesting for
example, a vdr-gstreamer plugin which uses ffmpeg to decode right?
Would be nice to have the option available but afaik the only
vdpau-supported output plugins for vdr are all based on xinelib. And
by all I mean vdr-xine and xineliboutput.
