Some serious correctness bugs remain, and speed leaves something to be

To fetch the dependencies:
git submodule init
git submodule update

To compile libnestegg:
cd nestegg/
autoreconf --install
(EMSCRIPTEN_ROOT=...) (PATH/TO/) ./configure

To compile libvpx:
cd libvpx
(PATH=$PATH:~/local_clang/bin/) ./configure --disable-vp8-encoder --disable-examples --disable-multithread --target=js1-none-clang_emscripten
(PATH=$PATH:~/local_clang/bin/) make

To build the javascript decoder:
Install the closure compiler (
and edit ~/.emscripten to point to the correct path.
(EMSCRIPTEN_ROOT=...) python

To test the decoder:
cp js/ ../Demo/route9.js
