Steve, I just got one idea:

The decoder device on windows should probe and unload a dummy hw decoder in order to get the chroma (or d3d9 vs d3d11). The decoder device is expected to have the same lifecycle than the window module. In that case, this hack will be done only one time per vout, so that's only one time during the VLC lifecycle in most times.
