The packet timestamps start at 0 and increment by 1.
The time stamps when they arrive then at the decoder are broken though,
0 appears twice:
I have no clue which is supposed to be the outgoing time stamp.
I tried setting the frame pts to the incoming packet's but that had
no effect at all (is it even used anymore??).
Setting pkt_pts and/or pkt_dts did not change the slightest thing
The time stamps coming out of guess_correct_pts are 0 and 166667.
As are the values from get_sync_ipts.
In do_video_out the input pts is first 0 then 5.000010.
"duration" has a value of 5.000010.
sync_opts is first 0 then 5.
Same for big_picture.pts.
However enc->coded_frame->pts stays at 0 and so does pkt.pts.
The packet arrives that way in av_interleaved_write_frame,
both times dts is AV_NOPTS_VALUE, pts 0.
compute_pkt_fields2 fixes it then up with
//XXX/FIXME this is a temporary hack until all encoders output pts
and since it does not have enough information gets it wrong.
The real WTF is that this hack is run without printing the slightest
message. Would have saved me about an hour time if someone had
simply made that hack say that the encoder is broken.
