What would be the use of one? Vulkan was made to lower cpu usage on
lots of drawcalls and transfers. A media player does one drawcall and
uses very simple fragment shaders - it does not benefit from vulkan.

It does not run on more platforms either, vulkan requires much more
complex hardware than gl/gles.
