We should scrub the list for the easy ones. I wager that rgbb, Motion
JPEG OpenDML, Animation JPEG OpenDML, JPEG, jpeg, YVU9, FFDS, Component
Video, WRAW, Y41P. In fact, I think that compn has already hooked up a
number of these to the MPEG-4 video decoder.
I have been slowly working through the Picsearch sample list, studying
the samples, entering new pages into the Wiki, and organizing samples on
mphq. Note that not all of those FourCCs are strictly valid. I think
that 'dslv' falls more into a 'meta' category of QuickTime codecs. Come
to think of it, 'jpeg' (lowercase) is probably the same (a still frame
in front of a movie trailer's main SVQ3 video track, for example; I used
to see this a lot).
