Let me once and for all clarify the issue with MPlayer and the palette 
for you, Eugen. The palette side data packet is sent alright in 
matroskadec.c, the problem is that MPlayer sends ANOTHER palette side 
data AFTERWARDS, using whatever is in extradata as the palette. Complain 
at the authors of MPlayer, not me.
