   I added a few fixes, here is the latest snapshot:

   The xvideo part somewhat works, but only with one direct buffer. I
did not manage to create several Xvimages, allocating more than one
results in a BadAccess later. If anyone wants to have a look at it, set
XVIDEO_MAX_DIRECTBUFFERS to more than 1 in plugins/x11/vout_xvideo.c
and try to see what's wrong. It's probably trivial to fix, but it's far
beyond my X programming knowledge.

   I'm now working on the generic chroma transformations so that non
accelerated video output works as well.
