Do you say that a full OpenGL implementation could somehow enable the opportunity to use the GPU for video decoding?
Yes, if you use GPGPU you can decode H.264/MPEG-4/AVC; for example: http://www.divideframe.com/?p=gpudecoder
I don't know about the OpenGL implementation on MorphOS (TinyGL), I assume that GPGPU technologies such as CUDA and OpenCL require most of OpenGL to be available. You probably need a much more modern GFX card than those currently supported by the latest MorphOS, too.
In conclusion, this route is not impossible but there are many difficulties.
