Some software is more complicated to develop then other software, and sometimes it takes much more time then expected, however the results count. With one of the projects were I am project leader of, defraser, it appears that we have now a stable product which can be used to analyse MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4 and 3GP. Broken video streams can be analyses as well as many others, and since it is open source others can also develop on it. Students from the Hogeschool Amsterdam have developed plugins for AVI and JPEG, and we expect them also to be available soon. You can download it for free from https://sourceforge.net/projects/defraser/ and of course we are more than happy if you can also develop plugins. The software works for broken or parts of 3GP-files for example from mobile phones.
