Okay, thanks. Google (still) points to your old page with patches to old
versions of mplayer.

What I mean is that ffmpeg (or actually: the libavcodec lib) would
feature e.g. an h264_vaapi codec that would decode (encode?!) any stream
like the interal decoder (vs. libx264) would do, a drop-in replacement.
I guess that way no player program that uses ffmpeg (including the
ffmpeg cli tool) would be able to use vaapi without patching.
But I guess there is a good reason not to do it that way ;-)
