I currently have NVDEC working for decoding, but still going via memory 
to OpenGL. At this point it can play up to 4K video at 30fps, 4K at 
50fps or 60fps is not handled. I hope to have the GPU video direct 
working soon. None of it is yet committed because I have to sort out a 
compile issue with dependencies.
