libvlc_set_format_callbacks: dynamic video format selection

LibVLC applications can now select their video memory format when the
video output is created. In particular, this allows preservation of the
original pixel dimensions.

While untested, this should also enable planar YCbCr rendering. Until
this, vmem assumed that all planes had equal pitches, so that subsampled
planes would not really work.
