I just wanted to make sure you don't expect other applications 
to support these "hacks". (It is strictly defined for nut, but 
since we only defined it today and most applications do not 
support nut well, it is unlikely you will have success.)

I applied slightly different patches, so please revert before updating.

I will try to support the videos in MPlayer, maybe remind me.
