whats a timebase?
its simply the units in which timestamps are stored
1 second for example is one, 1/100 second too is one ...
now for example if we have a 25 fps video and a 1/100 second timebase then the
frames could have the following timestamps
if we have a 1/150 second timebase then our 25 fps video would have
and a 30 fps video with 1/150 timebase would have
if we now have a video with 1/30 fps which has a few identical frames which
have been skiped and arent stored then the timestamps might be
a 30 and 25 fps mixed video with 1/150 second timebase could look like
av_set_pts_info(AVStream *s, int pts_wrap_bits, int pts_num, int pts_den);
av_set_pts_info() sets the timebase and the number of bits each timestamp has
so if timestamps are stored as 33 bit values like in mpeg then pts_wrap_bits
is 33, if they are stored as 64bit values in the bitstream then its 64
pts_num is the numerator of the timebase, pts_den the denominator
i hope this makes the whole clear to everyone ...
