Your patch changed two things: the MIN_PRE_1_3_19_PRIVATESTREAM stuff, which merely
made detection of pre 1.3.19 Dolby Digital data more reliable, and the (Data[7] & 0x01)
check in "// Compatibility mode for old subtitles plugin:". I assume that the latter one
is what's causing your problems.

Can you please reinstate the MIN_PRE_1_3_19_PRIVATESTREAM stuff and check whether just
leaving out the (Data[7] & 0x01) check is enough to fix this?

This additional check was suggested by Marco Schlüßler, so maybe he can comment
on this and maybe find out why this is interfering with the pre 1.3.19 Dolby Digital
detection?
