Description: fix ASX playlist parser
Basically our asx parser is broken. It doesn't handle relative links. It should also URL encode the hrefs (spaces in the url need to be converted to %20 etc). protocol rollover, authors, title's etc etc aren't handled. See <a href="http://www.meetnewplayers.com/bend/Windows%20Media%20-%20Fun%20with%20asx%20files2.htm">this</a> for asx examples. It is still located in the old demux/m3u.c module instead of modules/demux/playlist/

- 4:3, 16:9, freeform Aspect Ratio
- cropping and padding (do at OS level, but provide a core call to set it up and configure).
- OSD at window resolution instead of video res (secondary vout channel)
- a OSD needs to be bound to a vout stream (no subs on goom vout)
- Use OS native calls where appropriate, with 'C' fallbacks. (OpenGL, Quartz, DirectX already has many of the funtionalities we seek and sometimes they are a lot faster too).
