I think he is referring to PES packets size, not TS packets size. As far
I can remember, a PES packet size can go from 0 (unspecified, can be
used only for video streams) to 2^16-1. (so, what does the muxer do if a
frame is bigger than 2^16?)

Some time ago, I played with the libavcodec ts muxer, and I noticed that
the PES packet size that it uses creates problems to hw decoders...

(Disclaimer, I still have to look at the patch :)

Copy this in your signature, if you think it is important:
