 I actually got my 70012 to work well with gstbcmdec after one of the 
 more significant
 updates to the driver/lib so I think it can be made to work, but 
 certainly my
 current code is not treating it well. I would not be surprised to hear 
 that the
 vlc patch has similar problems.

 Thanks for the heads up, I took a look and it's conceptually the same; 
 but it
 doesn't touch interlacing at all, and I suspect that if vlc actually 
 uses output
 timestamps, things will go south fast on a 70015 as that fails to 
 return them
 with the decoded frames (as mentioned in my reply to Reimar.

 I do intend to move this to an ffmpeg codec once I've dealt with the 
 major problems
 and hopefully vlc can share that.
