[vlc-devel] [PATCH 00/11] DTSHD: VLC 3.0 backport request

IMO DTSHD needs a decoder that's HD aware to be able to make use of
the extra bits. So it makes sense to tell the decoder when we're
looking for one. Either via the codec ID or some extra data (like it's
sometimes done for video).
It would also be good to show in the Media Information tab if the
track is DTS or DTSHD anyway. So a new codec ID makes sense.
