Are we talking about EBU teletext DVB substream? or another DVB  
substream type? or in-video VBI data?
There are many ways to transport this data. the first ones are easily  
retrievable. The data just needs to be extracted at the demux level  
(modules/demux/ts.c) and forwarded to a decoder. in video vbi data is  
really annoying in that you need to retrieve the CC from the mpeg2  
decoder, and none of the mepg2 decoders currently support this as far  
as i know.
