Sure. The femon's current implementation can only interpret these values 
from MPEG2 streams, so a support for H264 should be added. However, I'd 
like to broaden the cDevice interface to include most of this stuff, so 
the decoder could provide the information for any plugin/skin. Does 
anyone know, if this kind of statistics can be obtained from i.e. 

At the moment, I don't have any plans to start using the multiproto, so 
just start sending your patches and I'll merge them into next 
development version..
