I would like to modify the structure of interaction between the decoder and 
the audio layer as mentioned previously. while it works its messy and is 
probably not that extensible. however I havent thought of a "good" 
alternative yet. ideas welcome. I want to keep the interface to the audio 
layer as unadulterated as possible. this includes the passing of passthru 
codec info and number of channels present.
1 param would be better. however I found passing the decoder ptr allows for 
getting params from the decoder.
still not sure.
