Patch for 6 channels support in avimux

Just change the pad template of avimux to support ac3 with up to 6 channels, tested with VLC..  I see no reason to limit to 2 channels..

Please note also that the audio "works" but is out of sync, but so is AC3 with 2 channels and AAC with 2 channels,,, so there are some other problems with these formats...
