Yep, mjpeg is "Motion JPEG", a format where each frame is a compressed JPEG
image. This differs a lot from MPEG.
And the mpegtools I mentioned *do* exist as an entirely different package. I
just don't have an URL right now. It's a project of the Berkley University
However, a short glance at the mjpegtools homepage shows that they seem to be
able to handle mpeg streams in some way or another. But I haven't understood
in what way (it's 2 o'clock in the morning and I actually belong to bed now).

Well, not quite - see above :-)
