[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).
Thank you ,
