#2406: Patch and new files to use Mac OS  X System DVD Playback Framework.

 Priority:  minor            |   Milestone:  unknown

 Whilst the Internal player works 'OK' on Mac OS X Frontends - I've had
 some problems with menu drawing and handling.

 The attached patch and two new source files use the Apple supplied DVD
 Playback framwork on Mac OS X to play a DVD. This is much more reliable
 and potentially has better performance since it has access to the system
 internals for MPEG-2 accelerated decompression too.  If the user
 preference is for 'internal' DVD Player and this patch is in place then
 the DVD Playback Framework is used - it's probably a small matter to
 change things to recognize 'DVDPlaybackFramework' or somesuch as a
 preference if that is preferred over assuming the 'Internal' preference.

 The DVD Playback framework also supports extracting camera angle info,
 title & chapter info,  subtitling and bookmarks too and in time I'd like
 to add those features into this code. In short everything that the Mac OS
 X DVD Player app does is done with this framework (with the exception of
 the UI).
