Hi Misha
Thanks for prompt reply. That would be a very useful code for extracting
key frame images. but actually need to extract the intra-prediction modes
in each key frame of an input video stream. Can you help me to achieve
this? the input of the program would be an h264 raw video file and the
output would be a text file that stores intra-prediction modes with related
MB address and i-frame id.
