suggestions are welcome.

1) refuse all "invalid" files
2) duplicate all riff/isom lists
3) do this instead

maybe people use old software or run into crashes in proprietary
software and sticking mov codecs in avi works around some bug?

in the end people just want it to 'work', and when they get "Could not
find codec parameters for stream 1 (Video: none.." , thats not helping.
especially when we already have a decoder and it uses the same tag.
