 Apple have recently announced a new Apple TV capable of playing Dolby
 Digital Plus (eac3) http://www.apple.com/tv/specs/

 Attempts to encode or mux this in an m4v container with ffmpeg currently
 gives the error: Could not find tag for codec eac3 in stream #1, codec not
 currently supported in container

 It would be nice to have this updated in ffmpeg to allow us to encode our
 own videos for use on the new Apple TV
