[FFmpeg-devel] Evaluation of flag AVFMT_TS_DISCONT
Fri Dec 17 10:28:27 CET 2010
I am encounting problems when copying packets from MPEG2 Streams to a
new MPEG2 stream using the function av_interleaved_write_packet(...)
It complains about "non monotone timestamps" as the previous packet and
the packet to be written have the same timestamp as read from the source
This is even due to the fact that the output format has the flag
AVFMT_TS_DISCONT set, which as documented in avformat.h explicitly
allows non monotone timestamps.
Unfortunately this flag is not evaluated in the
av_interleaved_write_packet() function, which gives me the error described.
Wouldn't it be more correct to evaluate this flag at this time and allow
the non monotone timestamp if the flag is set?
Is there a certain reason why this flag is simply ignored at this time?
A very bruteforce-solution to this, is to simply set the dts to the
previously used dts+1 before passing the packet to
av_interleaved_write_packet(), which prevents the wirte from failing,
althouh the result is not 100% correct, which can be recognized when
playing the file again.
