[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH] Add DICOM Support

     The code is to add DICOM Support. The patch is only for 
uncompressed dicom files using explicit value representation. I would 
extend it, once i clarify some doubts.     As dicom image files contain 
lots of metadata about the patient. So, should i display that data while 
demuxing or should i ignore and only demux the image data ?. In the 
current patch, i have made an option "-metadata", which when used will 
print the data on the terminal while demuxing.

Also, in the dicomdict.c ( which is only required for implicit dicom 
files, and for metadata), till now i have only specified ~200 data 
elements. but the dicom specification, specifies a total of ~4000 data 
elements (would do binary search if all the tags are needed ). So, is 
there a better way to specifiy that data?. (I mean if we ignore the 
metadata about the patient, then we only need to specify ~150 data 
elements for image data).

I have uploaded some samples of dicom files with explicit value 
representation here (in case needed).


Please comment,

Thank you ,
