I don't like the way it's implemented. I don't know any decoder that
have a frame type forcing feature other they I-Frame. It would be much
more natural to use a toggle button control (and add more controls for
other types when needed) then trying to merge hypothetical toggles into
something that manually need to be set and disabled.
