Hi,
 
That's really cool!
I have thought someone would have the same idea as mine, but I did not found that has been implemented in Wireshark.
 
So could I easily add support for another format in Wireshark easily (as easy as add a dissector, better if I can write one in Lua)?
 
Sorry, I do not have code at hand right now.
 
Thanks!
