      Best guess would be MAYBE Vmware, but thats a maybe. KVM is still working on GPU Acceleration in the VM so thats a no, and probably not Virtualbox, just given their level of quality and efficiency in the past.

      EDIT: Microsoft Virtual PC might, only because I think thats restricted to Windows Clients On Windows Hosts, so they could very easily pass through the decode API

        So use libvlc too? Why don't use vlc or gstreamer?
