Where is the user supposed to set the "sout" (by means of the UI) so
that it uses the proper render?

 Looking at the "vout" it's either in the config or directly on the
currently playing input_thread_t. I'm fine with setting the value in
the config, the user will have to explicitly disable the renderer
between VLC launches.
