Well, the next vdr-xine release will support it. It works here already,
but the biggest drawback is that FFmpeg "lacks" interlaced H.264
decoding (PAFF, MBAFF), i. e. FFmpeg crashes after a few frames.

When I got it right on the FFmpeg-devel mailing list, it seems that
interlaced H.264 decoding got a google summer of code 2007 project. So
lets see what we get later this year.

Also, the multithreaded H.264 decoding sounds promising, as a single
core cannot cope with 1920x1080.

Bye.
