Bug 959440 - Various cleanups in MP4Reader. r=kinetik Change PlatformDecoderModule::Create*Decoder() to take an mp4_demuxer::{Audio,Video}DecoderConfig parameter, instead of enumerating all parameters. This means the platform decoders can have more data if need be, like the AACAudioConfig. Change MediaDataDecoder::Input() to take an nsAutoPtr<MP4Sample>&. The sample will be deleted by the caller (MP4Reader) if Input() returns DECODE_STATUS_OK, but if the MediaDataDecoder wants to assume responsibility of the lifecycle of the sample (say to enqueue it), it can forget() on the nsAutoPtr& passed in and assume responsibility. Call PlatformDecoderModule::Create() on the decode thread. This is a step towards making these classes decode-thread only. Add PlatformDecoderModule::Init(), which caches the pref's we need, since PlatformDecoderModule::Create() is no longer called on the main thread, we can no longer access them in there. Add Init() method to MediaDataDecoder interface. This is so that we can call MediaDataDecoder::Shutdown() to unblock the initialization of a decoder, if that init needs to block. Pass LayersBackend type to WMFVideoDecoder, so it knows whether to init DXVA.
