setAutoDetectSubtitles should be setAutoDetectSubtitle I think. Or all
the API should say "subtitles".

I'm worried that setSubtitleEncoding is a bit Xine-specific. But text
codecs suck, so perhaps there's no way around it.

Anyways, the API doc could specify that the codec names be the same as
what QTextCodec uses. So the argument should be a QByteArray instead
of QString, to match what QTextCodec expects (and why not).
