As a second option I would be interested in the nokia MVC decoder if the 
SVC decoder is not accepted, unless someone else has already ask for 
this project? I think this would be helpful enough to my current 
research. Also would fixing up some of the H.264 problems still be 
acceptable as qualification tasks if I did take on that MVC decoder?
