However, certain input files lead to the frames being decoded upside down (the input files play correctly in, say, mplayer).

>> Yes, you can perform flip and color conversion in one step with sws_scale. You can find the answer in this thread: http://ffmpeg-users.933282.n4.nabble.com/Flip-in-sws-scale-td939665.html
> Thanks! That answers my sws_scale question.
> My remaining problem is: How can I tell if the video needs to be flipped vertically or not? Is there a flag in one of the context structures somewhere? I have some input files that end up vertically flipped, and some that do not, but I'm sure the information exists somewhere because when I play those files in media players, the players are able to play them all in the correct orientation.
> Thanks again for your time,
The linesize  parameter should contain a negative value indicating image is flipped
