Ok, I carefully followed the instructions in:
and it worked. After that I could use ffmpeg to
convert a WMV9 (aka WMV3, aka VC-1) stream into a
plain old mpeg stream using ffmpeg.
So it works.
Unfortunately my small test program which uses ffmpeg
as a library did not work. But now I know that I can
get the file decoded, all with open-source components,
so I just need to fix whatever small bug is causing
this to crash, and then I should be able to recompile
the whole thing on my x86_64 machine, link it in with
Hopefully a future release of FFMPEG will soon include
optimized VC-1 support. It looks like most video
going around these days is either MPEG or WMV, so it's
great that there is published code for a WMV3 decoder.
