[macosx] Remove QTKit based media player

    Details

    • Subcomponent:
    • OS:
      os_x

      Backports

        Description

        It's time to remove QTKMediaPlayer:

        - Apple has been trying to get developers to move off of QTKit for several years, we need to comply.

        - QTKMediaPlayer has been replaced by AVFMediaPlayer which is more stable, far more capable and is allowed in applications destined for Mac App Store distribution.

        - The system requirements for Java 9 are such that we no longer need the QTKit based player. It was only kept around in Java 8 after JEP 206 (8u40) because we had to continue support for 10.7.


        Since we now build with a later SDK, we can also remove the messy workarounds in AVFMediaPlayer to get it to compile with the 10.7 SDK.
