Hi Michel
Thank you for your quick reply,

Let me clarify something:

I got the video ES from RTP packages and put it into a buffer and I
want to use it
as the input for a FFMPEG function to directly decode it from the
buffer without writing
anything to hard disk.

My first solution is trying to modify the function av_open_input_file()
but I got no success so far.

Any idea or code snippet will be highly appreciated.

Thank you beforehand.
