Shouldn't TIFFReadEncodedStrip be used to read a TIFF file and not a JBIG file? Of course, the TIFF file can have JBIG image data, but.. isn't TIFFReadEncodedStrip used to read TIFF files only?

I would have expected that this should be transparent for the LibTiff library!

What is the other way to do so then?

If you're trying to read JBIG files shouldn't you use a JBIG library and not a TIFF library? So... JBIG-KIT maybe instead of libtiff?
