[qaac] release 2.51
Always write zero into avgBitrate field in esds decConfigDescriptor to be spec compliant. Was writing actual average bitrate before (this was automatically done by libmp4v2). The spec says that in case of VBR, is should be zero.
Write iTunes compatible "Encoding Params" tag.
Details on Encoding Params tag.
In this (binary) tag, encoding mode(CBR/ABR/CVBR/TVBR), bitrate, and the codec version is written. As far as I know, this tag is only used by iTunes to show bitrate and show if it is VBR or not.
For the sake of compatibility with iTunes, qaac writes nominal (target) bitrate into this tag, and iTunes will show this value when "Encoding Params" tag is present. Therefore, now the result of -v 256 encoding will always look like "256kbps (VBR)" in iTunes.
On the other hands, other (spec compliant) tools will show actual bitrate.
