I am trying to decode an h.264 stream and seeing a lot of "illegal short 
term buffer state detected." errors. The video is not playing smoothly 
and I am wondering if these errors could cause a problem. Can anyone 
tell me what causes these errors? It is possible that there is a problem 
with the stream being created by the h.264 camera but I will need to be 
able to explain what the problem is (if there is one) to the camera 
manufacturer. Thanks, David
