[Libav-user] Packet reading issue after seeking

Yes the constant delay caused by the continues av_read_frame operation is causing the problem.. Is there a work around to get the frame quickly?

Hi Ankush, 

I am also using ffmpeg and ffserver for streaming. I would like to know what you meant by 170 attempts? There is somehow a delay due to constant reading of read_av_frame function which is called often...In case of streaming, I assume it uses the dynamic buffer.

i am using ffmpeg in my application, everything so far is working fine 
except when i flush the buffer after seeking, my av_read_frame function 
cant find the video packet for almost 170 attempts which dosent alow the 
playing to work real time.
is there any way i can find video packets quicker after a av_seek_frame 
and then avcodec_flush_buffers.

Thank you
