mkv, mp4, mov, m2ts, ts, aac, m4a and mp3

* A new debug function facilitated testing and the creation of an
extensive player/format/stream compatibility matrix at:
"/In summary, some players are good for almost all formats, and if you
don't need subtitles or automatic aspect ratio switching, most players
will play most formats" /

* Added support for Fraunhofer AAC codec and libmp3lame codec for mp3
via new -a switch

* Added automatic conversion of AC3/DTS streams in VDR1.x recordings
