That depends on your understanding of "the same time". It is certainly
possible to support both versions in separate plugins. But that requires a

They cannot stay in the same plugin, since they need to have different
plugin priorities: OpenGL 2 higher than XVideo (for high depths and
subtitles blending) and OpenGL 1 lower than XVideo (due to colour space
