Yes, I count with adding other filters, maybe I will
move code to single file for example video_filter.c to make
it more transparent, but I will wait for Pierre opinion.
But I am interesting about point 2, because
if I understand it right, then majority of my
today's work is needless. I see there were some configs,
but I dont know, how it exactly works,
I would appreciate some information from dionoea
(or someone else who understands it).
But if they store applied filters and after restarting
vout they apply filters again, then they do same as me
in libvlc :-/
