I just had a quick look at the patch but there are some clear issues.

1. Don't use sws, a vo should just report the colorspaces it really support.

2. Don't use CONF_TYPE_FUNC, use normal suboptions or better use the
   string passed to preinit() with the suboptions parser.

3. Why use dlopen at all? There are systems (and yes linux systems too)
   that don't support dlopen. You can probably offer useing dlopen as an
   alternative (although some will say its just cruft) but static linking
   must be possible.

4. Use dioxygen compatibles comments when you document a function.
