Sorry for the re-post, I got no answers from the user list. Perhaps these are rather developer question, so I dare to try again here.

Subject: [xine-user] Can Xine lib do this: (single step,source aided trick play, ...)
Don't know if these are user or developer questions, I'll try here
first: (We're working with MPEG transport streams as the input
material.) Missing features need to be implemented, please help me where to look.
- single step: Can we single step forward frame by frame through a stream? I've experimented with a pause command within the frame output callback, but the result is not accurate.
- "free running decode": The source (outside of Xine) will assist trick modes (FF/FR) by spitting out only parts of the stream, which contain I-frames. Due to packetization, there may be some heading or trailing garbage of neighbor frames. Xine now needs a mode to display these frames as they come in, regardless of the timestamps which may jump forwards or backwards.
- PAT/PMT passing to application: the application needs this information, somehow we have to funnel these out of the TS demux.
Thanks for any pointers.
