Yes, it's fast.

BTW after I apply the patch, I am a little worried that a dialog with
progress bar shows in a moment whenever I play the videos.

I am of two minds about which to choose, using funciotn
FtConfigAppFontAddDir() or using environment value FONTCONFIG_PATH.
I attached a patch using environment value FONTCONFIG_PATH to the ticket #5491.
