Freun and Philip,

many thanks for you answer.

Looking at the CVS, vp32 looks fine for now, though I hope it delivers
reasonable quality. Btw, is there any additional documentation? I looked
at the docs in "vp32/Include/vfw_PB_Interface.h" (we want to interface
with the codec directly rather than using the Win32 DirectX/Media Player
interface), but it is very little documented.

Please let me know if you have a sample program (doesn't really matter
which platform) or any suggestion other than "look at the XINE source"

Okay, sounds familiar to me. Anyways, I'll continue to watch this list.

Thanks again.
