- JPEG2000 decoder & encoder

- macroblock based pixel format (better cache locality, somewhat complex, one paper claimed it faster for high res)
- regression tests for codecs which do not have an encoder (I+P-frame bitstream in svn)

- add support for using mplayers video filters to ffmpeg

As many functions tend to be a bit difficult to understand because
of optimizations, it can be hard to optimize them further, or write
architecture-specific versions. It is recommended to look at older

Alternatively, look into the other architecture-specific versions in

The Goal:
Our goal in respect to soc is and must be of course exactly one thing and
that is to improve FFmpeg, to reach this goal, code must
* conform to the svn policy and patch submission guidelines
* conform to the development policy and patch submission guidelines
* must improve FFmpeg somehow (faster, smaller, "better",
more codecs supported, fewer bugs, cleaner, ...)
for mentors and other developers to help students to reach that goal it is
essential that changes to their codebase are publicly visible, clean and
easy reviewable that again leads us to:
* use of a revision control system like svn
* use of a revision control system like git
* separation of cosmetic from non-cosmetic changes (this is almost entirely
ignored by mentors and students in soc 2006 which might lead to a suprise
when the code will be reviewed at the end before a possible inclusion in
