[vlc-devel] ViXS transcoder integration: suggestions?

   I'm looking for some advice on a video project - I'm using a chipset 
from ViXS to transcode video from MPEG2 into MPEG4 in realtime.

    I was originally planning on creating a new VLC encoder plugin and 
routing video into it with the existing transcode module.  However, 
transcode.c sets up a decode stage as the first part of its output 
chain.  Since the chip can take an elementary MPEG2 stream as input, I'd 
prefer the entire transcode cycle to happen on-chip.

    Would it be easier to just write my own stream_out module for 
hardware transcoding?  Or should I pursue adding special cases to the 
existing transcode module.  Any opinions are appreciated...
