ability to correctly handle video display through GStreamer-GL depends
on platform-specific support. Given you were using hole punching before,
I guess GStreamer-GL wasn't an option.
Hole punching hasn't made its way upstream yet. The feature, as
currently implemented, is too invasive to the layout engine and the
GStreamer media player implementation. We'll probably have to rework it
quite a bit to make it viable for upstream.
