// Simple Decoder
// ==============
// This is an example of a simple decoder loop. It takes an input file
// containing the compressed data (in IVF format), passes it through the
// decoder, and writes the decompressed frames to disk. Other decoder
// examples build upon this one.
// The details of the IVF format have been elided from this example for
// simplicity of presentation, as IVF files will not generally be used by
// your application. In general, an IVF file consists of a file header,
// followed by a variable number of frames. Each frame consists of a frame
// header followed by a variable length payload. The length of the payload
// is specified in the first four bytes of the frame header. The payload is
// the raw compressed data.
// Standard Includes
// -----------------
// For decoders, you only have to include `vpx_decoder.h` and then any
// header files for the specific codecs you use. In this case, we're using
// vp8.
// Initializing The Codec
// ----------------------
// The libvpx decoder is initialized by the call to vpx_codec_dec_init().
// Determining the codec interface to use is handled by VpxVideoReader and the
// functions prefixed with vpx_video_reader_. Discussion of those functions is
// beyond the scope of this example, but the main gist is to open the input file
// and parse just enough of it to determine if it's a VPx file and which VPx
// codec is contained within the file.
// Note the NULL pointer passed to vpx_codec_dec_init(). We do that in this
// example because we want the algorithm to determine the stream configuration
// (width/height) and allocate memory automatically.
// Decoding A Frame
// ----------------
// Once the frame has been read into memory, it is decoded using the
// `vpx_codec_decode` function. The call takes a pointer to the data
// (`frame`) and the length of the data (`frame_size`). No application data
// is associated with the frame in this example, so the `user_priv`
// parameter is NULL. The `deadline` parameter is left at zero for this
// example. This parameter is generally only used when doing adaptive post
// processing.
// Codecs may produce a variable number of output frames for every call to
// `vpx_codec_decode`. These frames are retrieved by the
// `vpx_codec_get_frame` iterator function. The iterator variable `iter` is
// initialized to NULL each time `vpx_codec_decode` is called.
// `vpx_codec_get_frame` is called in a loop, returning a pointer to a
// decoded image or NULL to indicate the end of list.
// Processing The Decoded Data
// ---------------------------
// In this example, we simply write the encoded data to disk. It is
// important to honor the image's `stride` values.
// Cleanup
// -------
// The `vpx_codec_destroy` call frees any memory allocated by the codec.
// Error Handling
// --------------
// This example does not special case any error return codes. If there was
// an error, a descriptive message is printed and the program exits. With
// few exceptions, vpx_codec functions return an enumerated error status,
// with the value `0` indicating success.
