pdp will support as little codecs as libquicktime does,
that's the deal. mainly, photo-JPEG and Sorenson,
but depending on your version of libquicktime.
anyway, if you can't read it with 'lqtplay',
you won't be able to read it with pdp.
on a side note, i have the impression that i answered
657 times to that question.

if you want pdp_ffmpeg~, you need to compile pidip with
but not sure you really need it.
it was used before to stream,
but now will be replaced by pdp_theonice~ for streaming.
