* Create a media for an already open file descriptor.
* The file descriptor shall be open for reading (or reading and writing).
* Regular file descriptors, pipe read descriptors and character device
* descriptors (including TTYs) are supported on all platforms.
* Block device descriptors are supported where available.
* Directory descriptors are supported on systems that provide fdopendir().
* Sockets are supported on all platforms where they are file descriptors,
* i.e. all except Windows.
* \note This library will <b>not</b> automatically close the file descriptor
* under any circumstance. Nevertheless, a file descriptor can usually only be
* rendered once in a media player. To render it a second time, the file
* descriptor should probably be rewound to the beginning with lseek().
* \see libvlc_media_release
* \version LibVLC 1.1.5 and later.
* \param p_instance the instance
* \param fd open file descriptor
* \return the newly created media or NULL on error
