I'm not sure if there is some decoder/player out there, that is capable 
of playing it any better.
It's an American TV channel, that's why I asked if anyone can tell me 
that it's encoded wrong or if American channels are just special and 
therefore need special handling.
I'm interested if I'm right when saying the value of num_ref_frames has 
to match the number of B-Frames in GOP?
