Hi Sebastien,

interesting work, thanks for starting it off.
How did you test this? I manually applied your patches to the git HEAD
and compiled everything (under Linux). I get different error messages on
the console, like:

[0x834f6f0] xcb_xv vout display error: no available XVideo adaptor
[mjpeg @ 0x825d3a0] Can not process SOS before SOF, skipping
[mjpeg @ 0x825d3a0] Found EOI before any SOF, ignoring

I got my MxPEG clipfile directly from a camera live stream, with the
help of wget, and saved it to a .mxg file.
Is the file extension important in order to be recognized as MxPEG?
