That's something which needs to be supported in the stack below Plasma. See 
https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/dri-devel/2015-December/096035.html for 
more information about an approach presented by Intel. Once that's supported 
it will work out-of-the-box without any adjustments from Plasma/GNOME Shell/
whatever side.

In addition some applications already support it, if it makes sense. Given the 
mailing list thread I linked above e.g. gstreamer supports it.

From Plasma's side I think the way Intel proposed it makes most sense. For 
Wayland one could consider adding support for it in KWin, but on X11 Plasma/
KWin is just the wrong layer for it.
