It's incredibly difficult to qualify a file as being "real STR", as you
probably know. PS1 games were free to use any ad-hoc framing they chose,
just as long as they accumulated proper blocks of data for the MDEC
hardware unit.

Are you sure the video is some other codec? Could it just be standard
MDEC data compressed with a custom Huffman scheme?
