0FFmpeg LogoUnsolved: Decoding interlaced vc1 in Media Center x64

Whilst my MediaPC setup can decode just about everything thrown at it, I have had problems decoding interlaced VC1 content.  The problem is caused by the failure of ffmpeg to support interlaced vc1.  Whilst there are other codecs (e.g. cyberlink or arcsoft) these are currently not available as x64.  Cyberlink do have an x64 codec for h.264 and mpeg2, but I haven’t been able to get it to work with VC1 content.  Hopefully ffmpeg will fix interlaced vc1 support soon, but as its been on the to do list for over 2 years I’m not holding my breath
