[MPlayer-users] ffmpeg and the DLL codecs for WMV (etc)

And I now have my FFMPEG / vC-1 -based frame grabber
working. It can grab any frame by number from the
stream, is completely command-line, and uses all
open-source software (no DLLs). It works fine with
both MPGE1/2 streams, and WMV3 (ie VC-1) streams. But
the speed difference is huge. I haven't gotten out
the stopwatch, but it looks like MPEG decoding is
about 20 times faster than VC-1 decoding. For what
I'm doing, it doesn't really matter.
Next step is to try it out on a 64-bit system and see
what happens. I'm optimistic.
