at least for the mjpegsink, you *can't* separate the two. You just feed
the driver a JPEG frame and it will display it. That's all. There's
nothing that can be done in between. I had the idea that the same was
also true for your card, but I understand that it works different for
your card/driver? I.e. your card is able to decode a MPEG frame, give it
back to the use for processing? (That's odd, that's not how most cards
