If I would care about long names, I would like them to be set to what
"widely used" players use, that is long names for windows media codecs
set to what wmp use (IIRC  wmv/asf muxer use a long name for wmav2
already), and quicktime codecs (ie h264/aac/alac) to what quicktime
player use.

It seems quicktime and wmp display long names ;)
