It was added in our 1.2 release (Dec, 2004).  It's been available since
last fall in CVS, and fixed after that (we didn't handle the ctts correctly,
until help from Laurent Aimar came).

Thanks to ffmpeg and x264, mpeg4ip can encode and record/stream live
v4l2 streams, and play it back, as well.

If I can help in any way, let me know.  I can point you to source code,
as well.
