player: change license of most core files to LGPL
These files have all in common that they were fully or mostly taken from mplayer.c. (mplayer.c was a huge file that contains almost all of the playback core, until it was split into multiple parts.) This was probably the hardest part to relicense, because so much code was moved around all the time. player/audio.c still does not compile. We'll have to redo audio filtering. Once that is done, we can probably actually provide an actual LGPL configure switch. Here is a relatively detailed list of potential issues: 8d190244: author did not reply, parts were made GPL-only in a previous commit. 7882ea9b: author could not be reached, but the code is gone. wscript still has --datadir switch, but I don't think this is relevant to copyright. f197efd5: unclear origin, but I consider the code gone anyway (replaced with generic OSD mechanisms). 8337d9c2: author did not reply, but only the option still exists (under a different name), other code was removed. d8fd7131: did not reply. Disabled in a previous commit. 05258251: same author as above. Both fields actually seem to have vanished (even when tracking renames), so no action taken. d459e644, 268b2c1a: author did not reply, but we reuse only the options (with different names and slightly or fully different semantics, and completely different implementations), so I don't think this is relevant for copyright. 09e742fe, 17c39c4e: same as above. e8a173de, bff4b3ee: author could not be reached. The commands were reworked to properties, and the code outside of the TV code were moved back to the TV code. So I don't think copyright applies to the current command.c parts (mp_property_tv_color, mp_property_tv_freq, mp_property_tv_scan). The TV parts remain GPL. 0810e427: could not be reached. Disabled in a previous commit. 43744a2d: unknown author, but this was replaced by dynamic alloc (if the change is even copyrightable). 116ca0c7: unknown author; reasoning see input.c relicensing commit. e7e4d1d8: these semantics still exist, but as generic code, and this code was fully removed. f1175cd9: the author of the cited patch is unknown, and upon inspection it turns out that I was only using the idea to pause the player on EOF, so I claim it's not copyright relevant. 25affdcc: author could not be reached (yet) - but it's only a function rename, not copyrightable. 5728504c was committed by Arpi (who agreed), but hints that it might be by a different author. In fact it seems to be mostly this patch: http://lists.mplayerhq.hu/pipermail/mplayer-dev-eng/2001-November/002041.html The author did not respond, but it all seems to have been removed later. It's a terrible mess though. Arpi reverted the A-V sync code at first, but left the RTC code for a while. The following commits remove these changes 100%: 14b35442, 7181a091, 31482783, 614f8475, df58e822. cehoyos did explicitly not agree to LGPL, but was involved in the following changes: c99d8fc8: applied a patch and didn't modify it, the original author agreed. 40ac0d31: author could not be reached, but all code is gone anyway. The "af" command has a similar function, but works completely different and actually reuses a mechanism older than this patch. 54350436: applied a patch, but didn't modify it, except for adding a German translation, which was removed later. a2dda036: same situation as above 240b743e: this was made GPL-only in a previous commit 7b25afd7: same as above (for now) kirijua could not be reached, but was a regular patch contributor: c2c997fd: video equalizer code move; probably not copyrightable. Is GPL due to Nick anyway. be54f481: technically, this became the audio track property later. But all what is left is the fact that you pass a track ID to it, so consider the original coypright non-relevant. 2f376d1b: this was rewritten in b7052b43, but for now we can afford to be careful, so this was marked as GPL only in a previous commit. 43844d09: remaining parts in main.c were reverted in a previous commit. anders has mostly disagreed with the LGPL relicensing. Does not want libaf to become LGPL, but made some concessions. In particular, he granted us permission to relicense 4943e9c52c and 242aa6ebd4. We also consider some of his changes remaining in mpv not relevant for copyright (such as 735de602 - we won't remove the this option completely). We will completely remove his other contributions, including the entire audio filter chain. For now, this stuff is marked as GPL only. The remaining question is how much code in player/audio.c (based on the former mplayer.c and dec_audio.c) is under his copyright. I made claims about this in a previous commit. Nick(ols) Kurshev, svn username "nick" and "nickols_k", could not be reached. He had a lot of changes in early MPlayer. It seems all of that was removed, at least in mpv. His main work, like VIDIX or libswscale work, does not exist in mpv anymore, but the changes to mplayer.c and other core parts still deserve attention: a4119f6b, fb927549, ad3529b8, e11b23dc, 5f2178be, 93c371d5: removed in b43d67e0, d1628d12, 24ed01fe, df58e822. 0a83c6ec, 104c125e, 4e067f62, aec5dcc8, b587a3d6, f3de6e6b: DR, VAA, and "tune" stuff was fully removed later on or replaced with other mechanisms. 340183b0: screenshots were redone later (the VOCTRL was even removed, with an independent implementation using the same VOCTRL a few years later), so not relevant anymore. Basically only the 's' shortcut remains (but not its implementation). 92c5c274, bffd4007, 555c6766: for now marked as GPL only in a previous commit. Might contain some trace amounts of "michael"'s copyright, who agreed to LGPL only once the core is relicensed. This will still be respected, but I don't think it matters at this in this case. (Some code touched by him was merged into mplayer.c, and then disappeared after heavy refactoring.) I tried to be as careful and as complete as possible. It can't be excluded that amends to this will be made later. This does not make the player LGPL yet.
