Not setting timestamps does not make it broken, though considering lavf
design it might be true, and I agree that a decent container should
provide timestamps, now I did not design swf.
You can use time base (audio sample rate, video frame rate) and duration.

"If this results in a non-integer number, write an occasional
SoundStreamBlock with one more or one fewer samples, so that the average
number of samples per frame remains as close as possible to the ideal

"For uncompressed audio, it is possible to include an arbitrary number
of samples in a SoundStreamBlock, so an ideal number of samples can be
included in each SWF frame."

So sample number by frame in streamhead is not always exact and
audio frames (soundstreamblock) does not have timestamps, though only
one sound stream block is allowed per swf frame.

Those words looks like a "best effort" framing and not a "mandatory"
though it seems always to be the case, mp3 framing is different than ad/pcm,
and parser computes duration so it works fine if you set timebase to
sample rate.

Now to fix swf demuxer, what would be best choice ? Computing pkt
duration ? Setting it to avg sample per frame ? Infering duration from
frame size ?
