* stream: remove useless author/comment fieldswm42013-07-121-4/+0
| | | | | | | | | These were printed only with -v. Most streams had them set to useless or redundant values, so it's just badly maintained bloat. Since we remove the "author" field too, and since this may have copyright implications, we add the contents of the author fields to the file headers, except if the name is already part of the file header.

* core: change open_stream and demux_open signaturewm42013-07-121-2/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | This removes the dependency on DEMUXER_TYPE_* and the file_format parameter from the stream open functions. Remove some of the playlist handling code. It looks like this was needed only for loading linked mov files with demux_mov (which was removed long ago). Delete a minor bit of dead network-related code from stream.c as well.
* demux_lavf: add support for libavdevicewm42012-12-031-0/+49
libavdevice supports various "special" video and audio inputs, such as screen-capture or libavfilter filter graphs. libavdevice inputs are implemented as demuxers. They don't use the custom stream callbacks (in AVFormatContext.pb). Instead, input parameters are passed as filename. This means the mpv stream layer has to be disabled. Do this by adding the pseudo stream handler avdevice://, whose only purpose is passing the filename to demux_lavf, without actually doing anything. Change the logic how the filename is passed to libavformat. Remove handling of the filename from demux_open_lavf() and move it to lavf_check_file(). (This also fixes a possible bug when skipping the "lavf://" prefix.) libavdevice now can be invoked by specifying demuxer and args as in: mpv avdevice://demuxer:args The args are passed as filename to libavformat. When using libavdevice demuxers, their actual meaning is highly implementation specific. They don't refer to actual filenames. Note: libavdevice is disabled by default. There is one problem: libavdevice pulls in libavfilter, which in turn causes symbol clashes with mpv internals. The problem is that libavfilter includes a mplayer filter bridge, which is used to interface with a set of nearly unmodified mplayer filters copied into libavfilter. This filter bridge uses the same symbol names as mplayer/mpv's filter chain, which results in symbol clashes at link-time. This can be prevented by building ffmpeg with --disable-filter=mp, but unfortunately this is not the default. This means linking to libavdevice (which in turn forces linking with libavfilter by default) must be disabled. We try doing this by compiling a test file that defines one of the clashing symbols (vf_mpi_clear). To enable libavdevice input, ffmpeg should be built with the options: --disable-filter=mp and mpv with: --enable-libavdevice Originally, I tried to auto-detect it. But the resulting complications in configure did't seem worth the trouble.
