The "spdif" muxer is actually IEC 61937 encapsulator.
S/PDIF (IEC 60958) encapsulation is done by the audio hardware.

The cosmetics have been fixed to refer to 61937, but I didn't go for
renaming the muxer as it is "almost" correct now and it would break
applications that use it (also, as Reimar said, "spdif" is a more
convenient name than "iec61937").
