Yes, I know, I specifically mean that JPEG-codecs, which can be used for
Quicktime (M)JPEG, AVI (M)JPEG and movtar which only can do JPEG anyway :-).
But as far as I know the AVI demuxer doesn't work very well (last time I
tested it the results were ugly) and there's no movtar demuxer at all. I
never tested the quicktime demuxer at all so I don't know how well it can
handle movies produced with Adam William's quicktime4linux codec.

Hardware-accelerated codecs will come later. This is about software-codecs.
All the three formats are based on libjpeg. So I should write a
'lav-demuxer' (or a movtar-demuxer and check the AVI/QT demuxers on how well
they can handle our movies) which grabs the JPEG frames which can then be
deocded by a JPEG-decoder?
