no, we still would need pkt_dts the 2 timestamps are reoredered differently
and a AVPacket * has a few extra issues like it has to be a copy of the struct
as the original struct can be freed long before the AVFrame is freed also the
bitstream pointed to from the AVPacket can be freed or changed long before the
AVFrame is freed.
