WIP Stereoscopic 3D support for half/full SBS, over/under, etc

If user closes xbmc in 3d mode, then next time it will start in the last used 3d mode. That is why I added 'Always start XBMC in 2D mode' so that user can select which option is needed. Will be removed so that xbmc will always start in 2d mode. Anyway who wants to see xbmc in a split window at startup?

'Preferred playback mode of 3D movies' - Options 2D and 3D can be added. For option 'Ask', how about displaying a selection message with the title '3D movie detected' and options 'Play in 3D' and 'Play in 2D' just like 'Resume from Stopped Position' and 'Start from beginning'.

I added another setting 'Automatically Switch to 3D mode' which I think can be replaced with 'Preferred playback mode of 3D movies'

There isa bug with subtitles in OU mode. The upper subtitle is positioned somewhat in the middle of the upper frame and so the two subtitles are never merged. I found this in FullHD TV resolution. In my 720p laptop it works correctly.

I am yet to familiarize with github. Pull request will be made after I making these changes.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Maybe I don't understand well what dou you mean, but are you sure this is good idea to remove it? What if xbmc is unable to detect that playing movie is 3D? In this case, user should be able to set gui split manually to over under or side by side (anaglyph doesn't make any sense, since gui is always flat). User will need to switch tv do 3d mode manually and switch xbmc gui split to 3d manually as well. Removing this don't seem to me to be good idea.

Also, please remember that not all users have 3D tv with CEC support connected. I have 3D computer monitor connected to my pc via hdmi. But there is no way to automatically detect this monitor has 3D support, also there is no way to automatically switch this monitor into 3D mode (this work only for 3D tvs). So, if there are some functions dependent from automatically detected 3D support and not available if 3D support is not detected, it's not good idea. Manual switch should always exist.
