Added support for AV1 decoding and encoding.
A lot of people are unexepectedly downloading AV1 from YouTube, and this makes Shotcut comptible with those files.
(Please be aware that AV1 encoding is naturally very slow and that is not a bug.)

Added detection of a HDR transfer function (ITU-R BT.2020 or SMPTE ST2084) to automatically show Convert dialog.

This helps a lot of people who are recording games in HDR and were surpised by the poor colors when editing in Shotcut.
