Hi Mike,

Could you resend your patch on the vlc-devel? The proper way to do it  
these days is to use 'git format-patch' [1].

Also, if you could keep separate patches for the different issue  
(spdif/opengllayer) that would be better as well.

Tripple buffering seems like the way to go, especially because we  
can't properly flush the buffer unless we use the terrible hack we  
have now. (calling -display on main thread)
