Agreed, I like it better this way too.

Could we apply the same START_CODE renaming here too?

I was also thinking that it would be slightly more readable put like this,
with START_CODE as a prefix since it's common to both options and the name of
the enum:

- V4L2_MPEG_VIDEO_H264_START_CODE_NONE
- V4L2_MPEG_VIDEO_H264_START_CODE_ANNEX_B

What do you think?

Cheers,

Paul
