Preliminary support for videos in ImageTweak

Today I finally had a couple of hours available to work on ImageTweak and I decided to start by adding some new feature (way more interesting than fixing bugs!). The result is that now ImageTweak can work its magic (this word is severely abused lately) on videos as well. Mind you, only for native video (i.e. those supported by the HTML5 <video> element) and not for plugin videos (flash-based as well).

Right now it’s nowhere near an usable state because the user controls where thought for images and obviously video has different needs. I’ll need to try to figure this out well before pushing a beta. The good news is that most of the functionalities work out of the box just by adding a couple of abstractions. For example, zooming and rotations work already, and so does resizing.

Now a new problem arises… since it won’t work on just images anymore, should I change the name ImageTweak? If yes, how should I call it?
