hi everyone,

i am new to this group and have been looking at the ffmpeg libavcodec for h264
decoding for the past 2 weeks.

i understand that both frame level and slice level multithreading are
implemented. but i could not figure out who is deciding whether to go for frame
level, slice level or both multithreading. basically it boils down to what value
the variable avctx->active_thread_type is set. please let me know if anyone is
aware of this.

thank you,
