Did you succeed in trying that?  I failed.

I tested levels 42000a, 42000b, 420016 and all of them fail to transmit
the maximum number of macroblocks (99, 396, 1620 respctively); in pixels:


by reporting errors about "... not enough buffer for decoded frame
(supplied=XXXX, required=YYYY)".

For the smallest size, 42000a with 99 macroblocks as maximum I could
successfully transfer 75x1 macroblock video (1200x16 pixel), which is
75% of the "theoretical" limit of 99x1 (1584x16 pixel).

Whats wrong with the memory management? :-)
