[FFmpeg-devel] ffmpeg and vlc non-standard MPEG2 TS sequence

Hi Everybody, 

The ffmpeg and VLC libraries are unable to generate
standard timing stamps for MPEG2 TS, when
encapsulating H.264 NAL units. It makes the TS
unreadable for hardware decoders (I tested on Sencore
products). This is based on many tests I run for
different sequences. Just thought to share my

The reason, I think, is that in contrast to software
decoders, a correct PCR value is vital for hardware
decoders; something that both libraries are missing. 

Please let me know if anybosy have a comment on this.
