"Overlay" video rendering has been depreciated for quite a long time.
It really hasn't. All current-generation GPUs have dedicated YUV overlay units, since they can do vastly better colourspace conversion and filtering, which makes a huge difference in image quality. Even putting that aside, you get an enormous benefit in terms of power usage, so pretty much all embedded/mobile/media-class chipsets vastly prefer the overlays.
