What is protected by a mutex? The VLC state is not the problem here.

FFmpeg developers say hardware acceleration with threaded decoding is not 
supported, especially not on Windows. In fact, I reckon Windows is the primary 
motivation for not supporting it. Depending on FFmpeg version, it either fails 
or prints a stern warning.
