The renderer is now always OpenGL. The hardware decoders decode into the 
video hardware and then the result is displayed with OpenGL. So if you 
select NVDEC profile you will see NVIDIA NVDEC acceleration & OpenGL 
Hardware. There were previously other renderers like xvideo and vdpau 
but they were removed. Does this answer the question?
