[FFmpeg-devel] ffmpeg isn't able to conceal a whole frame loss!

Thanks! Actually, I am using multiple slices per frame. But to simulate
the effect of the Burst Error Length, sometimes all slices of a frame are lost
and this situation is equal to a whole frame loss. Anyway, I want to interpolate
the lost frame using "frame copy". I think I can copy the previous frame using:
(s->current_picture_ptr) = s->last_picture_ptr;
*(s->current_picture_ptr) = s->current_picture;

How fun is this? IMing with Windows Live Messenger just got better.
