Summary0001917: Player active viewport should always have DCP container aspect ratio.

See this discussion.

Took me a while to understand the issue at first, but admittedly, if inspecting external content, it would be nice to see immediately if it is pillar-/letterboxed or not. So far, DCP-o-matic player only seems to set either flat or scope AR for the playback viewport. For other container sizes, it is not immediately clear wether the pillar/letterboxing is padded in, or wether DCP-o-matic player creates it around the active image.

As you say, the current logic is to start with flat and switch to scope if any content is in scope.
