Best thing to do is look the code & examples (xvid.h & xvid_decraw.c,
etc). Ive got (very little) bit done - got distracted with doing
back-end for gcc.

The key elements to decoding are;

 // provide necessary functions/constants/structs/etc
 #include "xvid.h <cid:part1.00070600.05000604 at gmail.com>"

 // initialise stuff
 xvid_global <cid:part2.01020708.01070101 at gmail.com> ( NULL, XVID_GBL_INIT <cid:part3.06060500.00030409 at gmail.com>, xvid_gbl_init_t <cid:part4.06020702.05070401 at gmail.com>, NULL );

 // initialise some more stuff
 xvid_decore <cid:part5.07020705.00080203 at gmail.com> ( NULL, XVID_DEC_CREATE <cid:part6.01010006.02090606 at gmail.com>, xvid_dec_create_t <cid:part7.06020203.06000301 at gmail.com>, NULL );

 // decode a frame (repeated to decode many frames)
 do {
   // read compressed data from stream/file
   fread ( xvid_dec_frame_t::bitstream <cid:part8.08000505.00070802 at gmail.com>, bytesperblock, numblocks, infile );
   // decode compressed frame to decompressed frame
   xvid_decore <cid:part5.07020705.00080203 at gmail.com> ( xvid_dec_create_t::handle <cid:part10.00030102.04040001 at gmail.com>, XVID_DEC_DECODE <cid:part11.01070603.02000307 at gmail.com>, xvid_dec_frame_t <cid:part12.07050504.05040003 at gmail.com>, xvid_dec_stats_t <cid:part13.02050304.05000305 at gmail.com> );
   // write decompressed data to stream/file
   fwrite ( xvid_dec_frame_t::output::plane, bytesperblock, numblocks, outfile );
 } while ( !feof ( infile ) );

 // free up resources
 xvid_decore <cid:part5.07020705.00080203 at gmail.com> ( xvid_dec_create_t::handle <cid:part10.00030102.04040001 at gmail.com>, XVID_DEC_DESTROY <cid:part16.05060103.06050209 at gmail.com>, NULL, NULL );

The html Doxygen creates does make code easier to hop around (if you
want ill submit what ive got, but im still playing around with it really)
