Title: Bitstream decoding device having a toolbox with a plurality of functional units distinguishable via identification information and a corresponding method

Abstract: Disclosed are a bitstream decoding device and a method thereof. The decoding device includes a toolbox, configured to include a plurality of functional units which independently perform a predetermined process--each of the functional units is distinguished by using unique identifiable information; and a connection control unit, configured to selectively load at least one functional unit by using the identifiable information and to control a bitstream to be decoded as video data. With the present invention, it is possible to decode bitstreams, encoded in various ways according to each standard, by using the same information recognizing method.
