[FFmpeg-user] How can I recode the movie in a way that I can step forward frame by frame?

I assume the movie is encoded using IPB frames. Thus I can't step from 
any frame to the previous/next frame but from I-frames to I-frames only.
So I'd like to convert the movie to an I-frame only format.

I don't wan't to convert it to a series of still pictures like bmp or jpg.
