[vlc-devel] [PATCH 00/12] Video integration within Qt interface for Windows

I made wayland first because I had time and knowledge
to work on Wayland, and made it work even before the
first new Qt interface version.

I've been working on the X11 patch but as there are already
example of how it should work, the main question was what
constraints were needed on the directcomposition side to be
able to design every compositors.

So it's quite alike your catch-22 situation for sout in
which you merged, rightfully in my opinion, patches that had
no uses to be certain that you are not wasting time on a
patchset that might be refused.

As for the interface, opengl and wayland worked since the
beginning of the interface rework and were refused, so we
are mostly trying to match what was required on this mailing
list while avoiding catch-22 situations. While we want to
minimize the review effort, we also want to provide support
for every platform too so I don't see where the incentive
is any different as VLC hobbyists.

I hope it's clearer for you,

Alexandre Janniaux
