> > Allow applications to request reading streamcast metadata. This uses
> > AVOptions as API, and requires the application to explicitly request
> > and read metadata. Metadata can be updated mid-stream; if an
> > application is interested in that, it has to poll for the data by
> > reading the "icy_metadata_packet" option in regular intervals.
> > There doesn't seem to be a nice way to transfer the metadata in a nicer
> > way. Converting the metadata to ID3v2 tags might be a nice idea, but
> > the libavformat mp3 demuxer doesn't seem to read these tags mid-stream,
> > and even then we couldn't guarantee that tags are not inserted in the
> > middle of mp3 packet data.
> > This commit provides the minimum to enable applications to retrieve
> > this information at all.
