To get back on the subject: I still need a way to differentiate DTSHD from DTS. I don't like having a different fourcc between DTSHD and DTS since DTSHD can be played as DTS.
Furthermore, I need a way to pass the frame length (with all extensions) that can be fetched from the packetizer. With this information, I can setup the required output rate instead of always setting the maximum (and have incompatibility with some receivers).
