Ok, sure. I can take a look at the code to confirm/deny your assumption. You are probably correct however. The codec is not designed to be a production level solution, but rather a sample whos purpose it to show how one could implement a MPEG2 decoder using IPP primitives. Because of this, all the bells and whistles of a production level codec are not implemented. The code is available, have you looked into adding this yourself? Another alternative is the Media SDK which does carry a production level MPEG2 decoder- albeit its a windows only solution.
