But I don't understand why I must send frames in a different time, I
mean, if a read frames from a file or from other capture device in
real time (I want make both), it's not enough encode them and send in
the same order with its own pts sets by "pkt.pts=
av_rescale_q(cx->coded_frame->pts, cx->time_base,
video_st->time_base);" as in "output_example.c"?
I know that are "low-level question"...but I feel a little "dummy" in
this sector.

thanks a lot for your help
