I think that was my initial intention, but then it wasn't possible
because the palette reading code halfway that function directly
touches stuff in MOVContext. I didn't look too deeply, so it may in
fact be possible to move that stuff away from MOVContext into MOVStsd
and then this would indeed be a good approach, at least much better
than initializing the complete QT demuxer just to read one atom...

Are you familiar with the palette reading code? Can it be moved (can I
move it) into MOVStsd without problems? Any reason it isn't there

Thanks for the review,
