I think that multiple sinks should be provided. My two favorite players
(media player classic from guliverkli and winamp) use VMR7/VMR9 and
Offscreen Overlays for Video and waveout or DirectSound for Audio. Since
mplayerc is opensource one could have a look at their implementation as
well. I personally prefer VMR9 over any other video sink because of its
speed and features though.
