AC3 bitstreamout plugin for VDR

This project implements a plugin for the Video Disk Recorder also called "VDR" ( to support the bitstreamout of Dolby Digital audio streams also called "AC-3" or "A52" through the   S/P-DIF   out plug of a sound card supported by ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture).
No decoding(!) of the bitstream will happen during forwarding the data, at least a sound card with   S/P-DIF   out and a hardware decoder or an amplifier/receiver with integrated decoder is required (most modern A/V Receiver have such thing) connected to the sound cards   S/P-DIF   out.
