Hi folks,

I'm trying to understand mplayer's filters, but I've got some 
difficulties w/ that.

Of course a filter is something which gets in a stream and puts 
out another one. But how does the filter see the video stream ?
Is it a 'simple' sequence of pixmaps or something else ?

By reading the recent thread about inverse-telecine-filter, i've 
learned, that is seems to be a little bit more difficult. Are some
streams not somehow a representation of picture-sequences, but 
instead make heavily use of physical effects of TV screens to be
usable ?

Please enlighten me :)
