In my mpeg4ip project, lib/mp4av/h264.cpp, routine h264_detect_boundary
should be able to detect access unit boundaries in elementary streams.
It might not work with multiple picture header or sequence headers (ie:
different versions for different frames in the same streams), but should
work other than that.
