Small correction/details:
With -vo fbdev:/dev/fb1
you'd need to set fb1 to YUV mode first.
-vo fbdev2:/dev/fb1
however will change it automatically to use YUV.
Configuring /dev/fb1 to actually be shown on screen is left as an exercise to the
reader ;-) (aka it's tricky and doesn't work properly half of the time,
otherwise I might have tried to make fbdev2 do it automatically).
