Its even implement by Michael for mpeg1-2 and h263, I am able to extract the cc using frame- side database

What is vdpau? 

Just now ffprobe does not parse enough frames, 
but if I am able to parse more info, then we can add some flag at AvStream  structure.
showing that there is closed_caption inside that video stream.

My question is that, do we have any problem if we increase number of packets read at time av_find_ stream info?
