Hi John,

Regarding to your question, the decoder is selected by the code:
if( p_dec->fmt_in.i_codec != VLC_FOURCC('d','r','a','c') )
/* your should change your fourcc, serach in google for fourcc for more info.
        return VLC_EGENERIC;

I suggest you can read the modules/codec/diarc.c as an example. The dirac
codec has a clear API document for you to trace the code. Besides, the API
document is old so it is not compatible with recent verisons.

Hope my suggestion is helpful ^^
