[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH] Parse bext metadata in wav (BWF)

The following patch set makes the wav demuxer parse the bext tag used in 
the Broadcast Wave Format (BWF). Doing so requires reworking the wav 
demuxer a bit, since it stops parsing the file once the data tag has 
been found. I have a sample where said tag is in the footer.

In short, it'll parse the entire file if the file is seekable. If it's 
non-seekable then only the header is parsed. Any tags encountered are 
handled by the same switch statement, so tags before the fmt tag won't 
get ignored.

I have no idea how to git-send-mail work on Windows, so mailing all 
patches might take a minute or two.
