Comment (by Github):

 Add VAAPI support.

 This seems to be pretty stable here although only tested using the xorg
 edgers ubuntu PPA on an Intel i3 530.

 - you must be using OpenGL to draw the main UI (otherwise initialisation
 will fail).
 - rendering is subclassed from the standard OpenGL video renderer, so
 OSD, subtitles etc all work as expected.
 - there is no deinterlacing support.
 - picture adjustments will follow.
 - there are some still frame issues with DVD playback.

 I haven't yet found a file that VAAPI won't accelerate for H.264 and
 MPEG2, including flawless playback of killa_sampla.
