Ah, sorry, I though Cecil was looking for the mlv codec, while he was
actually looking for the appropriate raw codec.

Indeed, decoding some samples (7D_14may14_blfixOFF.MLV) doesn't look
right, out of the box.

At this point, as it seems to be (guessing) "yet another raw format",
tools specialized on raw formats might be a better choice right now.
Though I prefer if ffmpeg supported "everything". ;)
