I didn't say it would be easy ;-)
However, it does have a clue through the file extension. That could narrow
the options.
If it looped through a number of different possible interpretations of the
data until it decided that it looked plausible (which could be a guided
choice through the codec.conf file) then it might work.
Anyway - hence my 2nd suggestion in the orginal email.
