Btw, is there a mechanism to use AVMetadata with pure data ?
A char * is limited to strings unless we put a length field in it.

I'm thinking of covers in .m4a files. This is a whole jpeg.
I bet someone will answer to use CODEC_TYPE_ATTACHMENT, however I will
need to create separate track only for this.

Any other mechanism ?
