This is an implementation detail. As long as we are using Android adaptation
and libhybris we already have Android native buffers which we can pass around.

We can always extend droideglsink with a mechanism that allows sending such buffers
directly to the wayland compositor without the app even noticing. The downsides are:
1) I have no idea how that can be implemented with QtMultimedia
2) The app might need to render GUI controls on top of the video which is the reason why
I suggested sub surfaces (But I don't know if it is supported or not).
