Did as suggested. Thanks!
Now I want to know how to judge if VLC player really runs HW-accelerated. Opened a video for playback and moved the window 'accidentally' to the second display (frame buffer).
This is what I got to see when stretched across the full desktop (video source file is FHD only, so will have to test with a higher resolution too)
Just look at the CPU load. It should be down around 15%.
VLC is blitting into the frame buffer at the end, so I see no reason why it wouldn't split across two screens.

omxplayer is rendering a single layer direct into the video scaler. You can set that up as two display regions to two different displays, but omxplayer isn't set up to do that (it's a pretty niche use case)

No, never has been, never will be on the current codec hardware.
