Disclaimer: I'm a Linux newbie.

Where do I find the source code to build libdvbpsi?  Please correct me if I am wrong but I cannot find it in the build of the VLC tarball.

I want to be able to debug into libdvbpsi as this library seems fundamental to the understanding of decoding and receiving a MJPEG UDP stream. I did a tarball build of ffmpeg and vlc and associated libraries using the guides found here:


My goal is to implement a Linux motion JPEG2000 ( MJ2 ) decoder. Any direction here is gratefully appreciated.  I am only starting with M-JPEG as MJPEG is also a frame-based codec.  Starting with M-JPEG should help me learn the VLC source code and figure out what modules I will need to implement for a motion JPEG2000 solution.  I want to learn what modules parse the network stream into frames  and where the frame decoding is called from.  

Thanks in advance for any tips or direction,
