[FFmpeg-devel] Splitting an MPEG{1,2} frame in slices

Hi all,

I am working on fixing MPEG{1,2} video RTP streaming...
The RFC requires to split each video frame in slices, and to set the 
"MPEG Video-specific header" (first 4 or 8 bytes of the RTP payload) 
accordingly (there are bits to set at the beginning of a slice, at the 
end of a slice, etc...).

I can parse the video frame "by hand", searching for "0x000001" 
sequences, but I want to avoid replicating some already existing code, 
so I am wondering if libavcodec already provides functions for splitting 
MPEG{1,2} video frames in slices.
