OpenGL ES 2.0 is supported, though performance can be bad for other reasons, and creating a GLES context is highly platform specific, currently only EGL+X11 and Android (partially) are supported, I suspect this is EGL+framebuffer, how to set that up is very vendor-specific so it is not implemented - though it should be simple with a bit of help from vendor documentation.

That could probably provide about 8x speedup as well.
Also, you can try the -sws option to get a simpler and faster conversion method, especially in case scaling is involved.
