I don't think that's a good idea to do without an OS. you do need to
have some layer of abstraction to use your hardware, or your brain
will explode. :-)

If I'm not mistaken, FFmpeg is not modular enough _for the moment_ to
allow the separate compilation of _only_ the h264 decoder. What you
want is to port "libavcodec" and possibly all the ASM that makes it
fast, but it will still feature MPEG4 ASP, MPEG2, MPEG1.
