Hello all


I would like to change the way information is presented to the user in,
mainly, the stream info dialog. Currently u see Codec: theo

Or Codec: mpgv etc, where the codec is listed as a fourcc code, meaningless
to the majority of users.


I'm currently making a little function to do fourcc -> full name lookups.


What I would like to change is that in the future people will see stuff like
this in the stream info dialog:


Codec: Windows Media Audio 9 Professional (WMAP)

instead of Codec: wmap




Codec: MPEG-4 Video (MP4V)

instead of Codec: mp4v



I would to hear if anybody has any protest against this?

This would also make the Codec name used in 1 or 2 muxers (only seen it in
asf) unnecessary.


Awaiting any comments
