Re: protobuf without LZO in elephant-bird
What format is the file in?

You can use ProtobufBytesToTuple() udf to convert protobuf bytes to a PIG
tuple.

e.g.:

define
ToTuple com.twitter.elephantbird.pig.piggybank.ProtobufBytesToTuple('com.example.protobufs.Table.User');

users = foreach binary generate ToTuple(user_bytes);
describe users;
