I believe my changes to macos_vout to be too immature to commit at the moment
to commit them. I'm working on this at the moment, which will likley result
in a new macosx plugin for video & interface.

If your g3 has a DVD-Drive, i guess you also have an ati-card (rage 128)
with this DVD-Addon-Module. 

If you search the IORegistryExplorer, you find some indices that there is
some kernel-support for this addon-board in 10.1 (e.g. there is a key/value
pair "IODVDBundleName => ATIRage128DVDDriver)

I guess this could be the kernel-support for the DVD-Framework
I wonder if one could use this support easily - since most people owning a
g3 with dvd-drive will likley also have this addon-board.
