Hi Jen,

It seems some work on this was done already in the past:

Unfortunately, the sample files mentioned in the thread don't seem to exist
anymore and were never added to the repo at (possibly the
licensing was never resolved?).

Could you help us help you by providing some new sample files?

Thanks in advance,

Yves Sucaet
