Don't worry then, ffdshow probably does not use AVParser. I was not
testing anything myself, I was just giving someone else a few hints
where to look to fix DVD still frames with ffdshow.
I do have the impression that quite a few people forget to call decode
with NULL at the end, if someone here did that mistake too they are
welcome to suggest a place to document it where it can't be missed ;-)
(seems the avcodec_decode_video does not mention it).
