H264 MDPM Tags

The following tags are decoded from the Modified Digital Video Pack Metadata (MDPM) of the unregistered user data with UUID 17ee8c60f84d11d98cd60800200c9a66 in the H.264 Supplemental Enhancement Information (SEI). [Yes, this description is confusing, but nothing compared to the challenge of actually decoding the data!] This information may exist at regular intervals through the entire video, but only the first occurrence is extracted unless the ExtractEmbedded (-ee) option is used (in which case subsequent occurrences are extracted as sub-documents).
