[MPlayer-dev-eng] [PATCH] theora support

I grabbed Theora CVS about 10 days ago, and the example player included
just sucked.  Thought that I could quickly add theora support to
mplayer.  Took much longer than expected, but now it seems to work
reliably.  Should also be complete, configure detects theora and without
theora mplayer still works.

I still must warn you: I'm neither an mplayer nor a theora expert, most
of this is based on digging through the ogg/theora/mplayer sources.  And
BTW theora bitstream format will not be frozen until it goes beta, so
don't already encode your DVDs to Theora ;-)

I manually merged my theora-enabled "branch" of mplayer with today's
mplayer CVS (of about 19:00 GMT) and created the attached patch.  You
should be able to aply it via "patch -p1" from within the mplayer/main
