Like, say, XVideo? We have the xf86-video-v4l driver, which gives you all
kinds of nice acceleration if you're displaying directly to screen. Has the
advantage of being not Linux specific. On the down side it ties you to X,
which may be a deal killer depending on the app.
Though gstreamer is really the way to go. Which means we need proper
gstreamer plugins to wrap v4l/v4l2 and/or XVideo and whatever else.
