There is no such thing as ARMv9 to this day. The latest ARM version is 7.
You probably mean ARM9 (without 'v'). Namely, ARM9TDMI is ARMv4, whereas ARM9E 
is ARMv5.

You need to write a new "codec" plugin that detects the codec, and calls the 
library to decode coded data blocks into either to YUV or RGB video or to PCM
