  I was using the older swf v9 player, for example AP News. The bigger
problem is the segfault, so I can't really test YouTube with vaapi right

  The Cairo backend is also closer to correct rendering than the OpenGL
backend. Since we have to convert vectors to bitmaps for OpenGL anyway,
we might as well use Cairo unless there is an appreciable performance
performance hit. I've never seen OpenGL really helping that much, so my
guess is with Cairo on top of OpenGL, we won't notice any difference in

  I'm also curious about the framebuffer backend for Cairo, and whether
it has touchscreen support, can run without GTK, etc...
