Older releases are so old you don't want to use these :)

SVN repository

The latest libmpeg2 and mpeg2dec source code can always be found by anonymous SVN:

# svn co svn://svn.videolan.org/libmpeg2/trunk           # Trunk
# svn co svn://svn.videolan.org/libmpeg2/branches/0.4.0  # 0.4.0 branch

You can also browse the latest changes online.

Test suite

The mpeg2 conformance testing bitstreams have been checked in with md5 checksums of the reference decoder output so we can easily test for decoder conformance. These are available via CVS: svn co svn://svn.videolan.org/libmpeg2/streams

All libmpeg2 checkins are checked against this test suite. If you do any work on libmpeg2, you might want to use this too - just get this test suite and make it have the same parent directory as mpeg2dec. Then run "make check" from the mpeg2dec package.
