Reading datasets with LZF compression in HDF View

We have dozens of files with LZF compressed datasets in them but have always received errors when trying to view them in HDFView. The release notes for the latest version of HDFView say that it can use dynamically loaded filters. There is an LZF filter registerd (# 32000), but I can't find any doc on how to get HDFView to use it.

Has anyone done this, even with some other filter ? I just need a clue.
