I see. VLC should be able to do that for you, it has fairly optimized
conversions available. VLC actually use this opengl trick to play optimized
video on osx, since the ordinary overlay-stuff don't work well there.

Vlc is very very modular, it will play several files at once, or files with
several video streams or audio streams on nearly any combination without
Btw, do your system have positional audio? That would be very very cool, but
also it would require some modifications to vlcs audio output to support.
