I don't really see how you can enforce embedded video on Windows or any Qt-based platform. You still have the headless (e.g. HTTP interface, VLM, RC), Skin engine and multiple track scenarii that cannot use the embedded Qt window provider.

But that's beside the point: there are no reasons so far to make a hack when a proper interface already exists.
