This plugin enables Hollywood to load and play many video and audio formats 
supported by the FFmpeg library. After this plugin has been installed,
Hollywood's OpenMusic() and OpenVideo() commands will 'automagically' be able
to open and play a plethora of new audio and video formats.


Version 1.4:    (25-Mar-15)
- New: Added 64-bit builds for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS
- Fix: Mono MP3s and other formats didn't work when in audio mode (reported by
Krzysztof Radzikowski)
- Fix: When in YUV mode, avcodec.hwp always stored 4 plane pointers although
there are only three;
  this bug is completely harmless, though, and didn't have any practical effect

Version 1.3:    (09-Jun-15)
- New [Linux]: Added build for Linux ARM
- Fix [Linux/MacOS]: Plugin is now compiled as position-independent code (PIC)
- Fix [OS3]: FPU version will cleanly exit now in case there is no FPU
- Fix: Incorporated some fixes from newer FFMPEG builds which solve the problem
  audio glitches when seeking audio streams because intermediate buffers weren't
  flushed correctly
- New: Added support for Hollywood 6's "Adapter" tag
- New: Added support for Hollywood 6's video/audio streaming interface

Version 1.2:    (21-Jul-13)
- New: Added support for playing FLAC files
- New: Added file type information for Hollywood 5.3

Version 1.1:    (07-Jun-12)
- New: The plugin now also supports Hollywood's sound stream interface so that
  can be used to play sound streams in several formats like MP3, M4A, etc. as
  useful on systems like AROS and Linux because Hollywood doesn't support MP3
  on them (requested by Richard Lake)
- New: Added binaries for Linux, Linux PPC, Mac OS X, Mac OS X PPC, and Win32
- Fix: Fixed a bug in the audio decoder that only occurred with some movies
  by Christoph Poelzl)
- New: Added resampling routines for videos that use a different channel layout
  stereo and/or a PCM encoding different from 16bit (reported by Christoph
- Fix: Raw H.263 probing code wrongly identified some GIF anims and JPEG
pictures as
  H.263 streams (reported by Simone Monsignori)
- Fix: WMV3 codec works correctly now (reported by Christoph Poelzl)

Version 1.0:    (20-Feb-12)
- First release
