For now, all I was asking is that VLC handle filenames with the
".264" suffix the same way that it currently handles filenames with
the ".h264" suffix. Yes, better data checking would certainly be a
good idea, but at least for now it would seem reasonable to make the
same 'guess' about a ".264" filename suffix that you currently make
about a ".h264" suffix.
