If you want to get a rough idea of the amount of caching going on, how
about this: when you first start feeding packets into the codec, count
how many you've fed in before it starts producing output. That could be
a rough indicator. You should really just let the codec tell you when
its cache is empty, as I don't think there are any guarantees about
this, but it might give a rough estimate. Just a thought.
