>General info:
>  Softdevice plugin enables vdr to run on your desktop with

>  DirectFB or vidix to your screen. Decoding is done via ffmpeg.
>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:
>2005-10-08: softdevice-0.2.0
>    - 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.
