Put also MacOS X into the picture. 
My app (Advene) is a cross-platform gtk-based application. On MacOS X,
until now, I had to use the X server and the X-based version of gtk
(thus using X11 window ids to embed VLC). Now, there is a native aqua
port for gtk, which means I can have potentially 2 types of video output
on the same platform. For the moment though, the aqua gtk version does
not implement the necessary code to embed widgets but it will soon come.
