#2115 closed patch (fixed)

MP3 encoding of captured audio produces static on PowerPC linux machines.

Description

I have the mythbackend running on a linux ppc machine--a powermac g4 (digit audio revision) running Ubuntu dapper. Using a Plextor PX-TV402U-NA I am able to record TV with uncompressed audio fine but using mp3 encoding produces static. I have tracked the problem to an endian issue in NuppelVideoRecorder?. It looks like the audio is read from the sound card as 16-bit little endian data; this raw audio data is sent directly to lame library for encoding, but the lame library expects data in system byte-order. Swapping the bytes in the audio before sending the audio to lame fixes the problem. I have attached a patch that fixes the issue for big endian machines.
