You are correct. SDL is used just to created default window with opengl 
context. Probably the only use case of this is to test this device with 
following command: ffmpeg -i video -f opengl aaa. The relevant 
implementation is depending on opengl API only and has nothing to do 
with SDL. Removing it just because of switching to SDL 2.0 is 
misunderstanding. I can port SDL part to use 2.0 API, just figure out 
how this will be handled. I mean if you want to support both or just 2.0.
