@Wimpy very nice.

Does it need special ffmpeg patches to get acellerated video playback?

@Wimpy ah. Just read in the blog that arm64 images does not have VC4 acceleration.

@Strit As for arm64 and libraspberry0, I was able to compile it for arm64 but most of the symbols were missing and therefore linking against it was futile.

@Strit Yes, I got them from the ffmpeg source package in the Raspbian archive.
