Ticket #8900: Prefer FLAC to AC3

I have some MKVs with a FLAC and AC3 track. I'd like the FLAC track to be
preferred. A better patch would also prefer PCM tracks to AC3.

Comment (by anonymous):

MKVs seem to have a concept of a default track which MythTV appears to
ignore. Respecting that would work as well.

Comment:

FLAC is definitely not superior to all the other lossless audio codecs you
put it above. (TrueHD, etc) Definitely can't make FLAC the "most
preferred" audio track. Would accept a patch to use the default audio
track from MKV, though.

Added a second patch to use the default audio track. Tested it by using
mmg to edit the header of a MKV file.

Comment:

Select the Default audio track if the container supports it.

Containers such as MKV permit one to define which audio track is primary,
and using this flag means not going through the avformatdecoder guesswork
we currently employ. This is courtesy an anonymous patch on #8900. I am
uncomfortable with applying the part that prefers FLAC to E-AC3/DTS/AC3,
though. There are a lot of people out there who encode secondary tracks
to FLAC and do a straight copy of the lossy primary track. I just don't
feel 100% on the idea of preferring it to other more commonplace codecs.

Fixes #8900.

Comment (by happygirlbaby@…):

Bigasoft FLAC Converter is a powerful audio converter program which can
easily convert any video/audio format to any other audio format on Windows
or Mac. So it is also a professional FLAC converter which can convert FLAC
to MP3, AC3, WMA, WAV, AIFF and etc on Mac or Windows in just one click.

Just google search '''Step-by-step Guide on How to Convert FLAC to MP3
using Windows or Mac''', you will find a step by step guide
