libmpeg2 is a free library for decoding mpeg-2 and mpeg-1 video streams.
-Conformance - libmpeg2 is able to decode all mpeg streams that conform to certain restrictions: "constrained parameters" for mpeg-1, and "main profile" for mpeg-2. In practice, this is what most people are using. For streams that follow these restrictions, libmpeg2 is 100% conformant to the mpeg standards.
-Speed -libmpeg2 is the fastest library around for what it does.
-Portability - This should be portable to all architectures. Assembly-optimized implementations are available on x86 (MMX) and ppc (AltiVec) architectures.
-Reuseability - includes enough features to be used by very diverse projects.
