Drop B Frames

Cycles between playing all frames dropping b-frames, and dropping every-other b-frame.  B-frame is a frame type in the h.264 codec that can be skipped over, which can be helpful when running into performance issues with higher bitrate videos.  Skipping b-frame effectively drops the frame rate and is not intended as a permanent solution to performance issues.
