Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] [PATCH] wiretap: Add MPEG PES.

I just submitted a patch to bug #1793 (mp2t: Call the mpeg-pes
dissector) that allows the MPEG TS dissector (mp2t) to call the MPEG
PES dissector (mpeg-pes). It doesn't support any desegmentation yet,
but that can wait for a future patch, and it still useful just as is.
To get an idea of how the PES dissector usually works, you should try
using wireshark to open an MPEG PES file: the first few megs of a DVD
VOB file should do.

Cheers,
Shaun
