...the thing about background jobs is that you don't have to do them on the
frontend. So you don't even need to do them on a box that has one of your
vdpau cards. None of my jobs run on vdpau machines. They run on my backends
and my main desktop.

   That way, I already get faster-than-realtime decoding even without vdpau.
