Hello Paul,

(My earlier letter to you was probably eaten by spam filters?)

The online patch file around the 5th of April was unfortunately from a
badly broken version which explains the artifacts in your test.

The fixed version is online since 2013-04-28 at the same url

The encoded streams play well with the open source decoder but are not
compatible with the vintage/proprietary ones (the latter probably expect
matching chunk types on key- vs non-keyframes which the encoder does
not care to arrange - should be easy to fix but nobody tried).

There are no other known problems (besides possibly the style differences
which you mention).
