[Libav-user] generating blank video frame?

I'm working on an application where if a UDP transport stream is lost/dropped for some time, I want to insert blank frames of video and silence for
My calling sequence looks like this (inside a loop):
avcodec_decode_video2(videoCodecInfo, &frame, &frameFinished, &packet);
converter = sws_getContext(...
My question is: in this sequence, how do I generate a blank (black) frame instead of doing
the above sequence? If the stream is lost, av_read_frame() just hangs out & I would like to create
blank frames in a separate thread. I tried just creating an output buffer, same
size I get back from sws_scale() and doing a memset() 0 on it, but then my player plays a green frame for
that video. I looked through the libavfilter/vf_blackframe.c code, but that is different from what I want
