[FFmpeg-devel] Is ffmpeg decode frame-based?

 Hi, all,
1. Is it frame based to do the decode such as H264's decode_frame()? ie.
does it decode frame by frame? Or can I change frame-based behavior say
decoding more frames before return?
2. Where or which data struct stores the output frame after decode?
3. This maybe out of the scope of ffmpeg. But I wonder if there's any tool
for analyzing or describing the bitstream such as which bit or
byte means in ES or AVI or MPG files?
Thank you very much!

Best Regards,
