XCD: automatic media detection and licensing

1. de_xt has managed to add automatic media type detection. so now there's only a single filter, which should work with ANY media type that's compatible with windows media players. it was tested to work with avi, mp3 and ogg files. (and it DOESN'T read the whole file to memory, it was tested by people with 800M files right of the cd, and worked fine).

this is probably the last release of this filter before we start implementing the error correction facilities (unless people find some serious bugs, in which case, we'll try to fix them).

again, it's only for testing, do not start using this format for REAL archiving of your clips. please also read the readme.txt file that's attached to this distribution. (as usual, it might take some time before the attachment is approved by a moderator)

2. XCD spec is advancing nicely. atm, XCD has 2 targers:

a. offer reduced error correction (compared to normal CDs) such
that more space of the cd will be used for actual data.
b. be used as a multimedia cd container (i.e. like SVCD) to
be used by both stand alone players and computer players.
it will have playlist and menus support.

this brings up another issue.
we don't intent to make money from XCD. we do however want to keep all the sources and spec open and publicly available, and we want this format to be used by commercial applications and players. and that brings the licensing issue.

some ppl told me that GPL licence might prevent it's adoption in commercial applications. can anyone pls shed some light on this issue for us??

we need:
a lisence that enables commercial applications to use this format, while keeping the sources and spec open. but we don't want any company claiming ownership on XCD in the future. any suggestions??
