Does this work?
I got the following error while I was trying this:

    nbytes = struct.unpack_from('@i', bytes[s:s+4])[0]
struct.error: unpack_from requires a buffer of at least 4 bytes

@anupamsobti it looks like the last bytes that it tries to unpack are blank. I just got it working by changing line 35.
for i in range(0, params['num_frames']-1):

I do have concerns that this might affect how annotations are read, but I haven't gotten there yet.

What all packages are required to run this Code? I am not getting any output now.
