A method and device for preprocessing streams of encoded data (e.g. compressed in accordance with an MPEG standard) to permit a decoder to decode the streams, back-to-back (i.e., one stream immediately following another), without being reset and without producing video artifacts. The present invention includes verifying that a multiplexed stream complies with an encoding standard and preprocessing packets of the packetized encoded video sequence such that no video artifacts are produced when a video decoder decodes an adjacent encoded video sequence.
