Given that VLC already supports Linux FrameBuffer, XVideo and X11 natively, it 
would probably be worth checking.

From your description, I assume there has to be an existing Linux driver, 
probably some kind of framebuffer device? Otherwise, it would be more of a 
months-long Linux kernel job than a 2 weeks VLC extension.
