Doubts about MPEG file reading.

Started by Ramya August 7, 2003
Hai all,
I have some doubts about how we read the data from MPEG file.

1) Do we read Audio and Video simultaneously ?  
Or do we read one after another? Is free source code available to do 
so?

2) While we are reading the Video data, do we read them frame by 
frame or Block by Block (Macro)?

If any of you know what are the steps to be taken to read the data 
from file, please help me to understand.

Regards,
Ramya.
