> Softdevice plugin enables vdr to run on your desktop with

>Special in this release (from README):
>- AC3 pass through:
> For using AC3 pass through, you have to specify the IEC958 device name of
> your sound card. Which device to use, can be checked with ac3play.
> For my system, ac3play works with: "ac3play -C -D 0,1 AC3_FILE_NAME"
> So my vdr call with parameter list for softdevice looks like:
> -P "softdevice -ao alsa:pcm=default#ac3=hw:0,1# -vo dfb:mgatv"
> Notice the trailing '#' of the last alsa subparameter.
> AC3 pass through is mainly based on the code of ac3play-0.5.2f, so
> many thanks to the authors of that program.
>- configure script
> By default you should "cd" to softdevice directory and run "./configure" .
> This will generate config.h and config.mak files, which will guide make.
> Available parameters of configure are listed by "./configure --help" .
> To get rid of these generated files a "make dist-clean" should be done.
> Without running configure, you'll have to modify the Makefile to your needs.
>Plugin's homepage is located at: http://softdevice.berlios.de/
>Changelog since last release:
> - dfb+vidix: fix colored shadow bug for some crop modes
> - configure: fix VIDIX_DIR path
> - configure: check if X11 is present
> - audio: AC3 pass through
> - Makefile: compatibility for build without configure
> - subplugin targets: changed prefix from libvdr to libsubvdr. so it doesn't
> interfere with vdr's "load all plugins" for plain help command.
> - configure: check if vidix compiles, optionally disable fb-out via
> command line "--disable-fb" and/or subplugins via "--disable-subplugins"
> - introduce audio debug
> - return 0 in GetDelay if pcm is not running
> - modified previous OSD redraw handling (timed redraw after _all_ OSD bitmaps
> have been drawn)
> - video-dfb: keyrepeat handling + configure check for DIET_REPEAT
> - fix for segfaults with some OSD activity
> - introduced configure script: try ./configure --help
> - video-out (all methods): fix for missing actions upon aspect ratio change
> - audio-out: fix potentially div by zero.
