I'm not sure about that... if there's a module or core features showing 
FPS live on the screen.
On the other hand, I have just compiled your patch which I merged into 
my personal build of the vlc-1.1 series and I have found that it a very 
very nice feature to have and have nice effects available at the user's 
Some problems when I test:
However, initially it won't compile because:
D3DXFX_NOT_CLONEABLE is not defined in anywhere inside the mingw-w64 
I can see the exact value in 
and have substituted it in directly.
And the value should have been inside the d3dx9effect.h

It crashed when I first played back a mpeg2 video, this happened at 
loading video.
At function CommonUpdatePicture
On this line, dst->p_pixels = src->p_pixels;

I loaded another xvid video it crashed on exit for some reason.

In conclusion, I like your patch very much, it shows me some very neat 
and nice video effects and features.
IMO, as a user, I like the descriptions of the effects showing on menu a 
more easier to understand and self explanatory if possible.

Thanks again for a very nice feature add-on to the d3d vout module :)
