 In case it helps, I had send a patch to this mailing list to use VA API
throught ffmpeg decoder.
 It is not optimal speedwise as it retreive the picture from the card before
sending it to the core, but the speed gain was not bad at all.

 The patch can be found here:

 If it help I can now commit it to 1.1 under #if 0.
