But why would it ever be non-zero. That is what I don't get.
The time stamp of the first frame in a stream, with-respect-to that
stream: sounds like it has to be zero.
Or is it to allow different stream in one file to have different start
points? That might make sense.... but then if there are two streams
and they both have an undefined start point.... what would you do
(Sorry if I seem to be being obtuse, but while I'm no stranger to C
coding, I'm very green when it comes to media files and formats, and I
need a little help up the learning curve).
