[Libav-user] Issue in decoding vp6f

Thanks Spencer

But i have already implemented the h264 and vp8 decoding through the same
code and they both are working fine.

While in h264 i have extracted sps and pps info from the container and send
it to the decoder prior to the raw video file while for vp8
we didn't had anything specific to do and it was decoded perfectally. So, my
question is mainly for vp6f, do we need to give
some signalling information to the decoder somewhat like sps and pps prior
to the raw video stream or it should work the same way as vp8 is working.
