Thanks a lot for this plugin. That's very interesting, and as Thomas
says, a lot of people have the same problem. So that's really cool that
there is a clean plugin for this ;)

Indeed, I would prefer a way to do a libvlc_video_set_texture(
texture_type_t, texture_ref_pointer); and then, let the video output
(and conversion filters) draw directly in this. And support OpenGL
(GL_TEXTURE_2D), D3D9 (DIRECT3DTEXTURE9) and D3D11(Texture2D).

However, I have no idea how valid this approach is, and if it is even
