Well, you should develop a codedc module to override the ffmpeg and
libmpeg2 ones. That shouldn't be too complicated if you hardware chip
provides a decent high level API. However, I'm not sure VLC's codec
modul API is that documented. I would suggest to have a look at other
codec modules, libmpeg2 for instance, as a example. Don't hesitate to
ask further questions.
