Thank you all.

And my thinking is that if we treat HDMI as generic digital output such as DVI, all display will be sent to HDMI. 
What I want is that only video/audio data playback within Gstreamer framework will be output to HDMI interface.

Any comments?

Thanks in advanced.

Why would it be any different from output through DVI, or another
digital output?

X should know how to drive it, the only hard bit being the HDMI audio.
