I'm trying to make the filter to make use of the field flags, but
I'm somewhat confused about the meaning of the bits in mpi->fields.
Could someone enlighten me please?

DVDs I tested set MP_IMGFIELD_TOP_FIRST, but there's no
corresponding flag for bottom-first, so I assume that it is
indicated by MP_IMGFIELD_TOP_FIRST being unset. But how is
the bottom-first case then differentiated from unknown field
order or progressive?

The mpeg decoder also sets MP_IMGFIELD_ORDERED and it gets cleared
if the filter examining the flag is not the first filter. This leads
to the assumption that top-first can be tested by:


and the bottom-first by:


But then many progressive AVI files get recognized as bottom-first and
DV-AVI, that really is bottom-first, gets recognized as neither, so
obviously I'm not on the right track.
