Yes but please bear in mind that we don't use any surface, we need a 
YUV 420 overlay surface, which is quite different from RGB surfaces. 
Apparently there are things about YUV surfaces, but (as usual) 
nothing is documented.

Besides, I'm not sure we can improve speed a lot, since we're already 
using a YUV acceleration from QuickTime which is quite efficient.
