You don't need to change anything. Just create a new "codec" plugin with a
priority higher than the normal plugin(s) for the same codec. Alternatively,
remove the normal codec plugin(s). Most codecs are stored in modules/codec/
Note however that VLC is currently GPL-licensed. So you cannot insert
proprietary code directly in VLC. Unless you don't redistribute the software
to anyone, you will need to write an open-source plugin/layer between the
proprietary shared object (DSP driver?) and the VLC core.
