 We have implemented VAAPI support in our video player and things are great
 so far. However, ffmpeg creates a hard dependency on libva when we compile
 it with --enable-vaapi. This means the library won't load if libva is not
 available. This was a big problem to us. We can't really force its
 installation on already deployed systems especially when they don't even
 support hardware acceleration. Instead, I created a patch to support VAAPI
 dynamic loading. This patch does not come without compromises. For
 example, the vaapi_context now requires additional function pointers.
 Still, if you think this could be useful, here is the patch.
