My understanding of the OP was not that they wanted to embed anything in
the bitstream but just that they wanted to set a cookie in AVFrame that
would show up in the corresponding AVPacket (if encoding) or vice versa (if
decoding), hence the suggestion of reordered_opaque. Quite possibly I
misunderstood! Maybe the OP can clarify.

My apologies! I won't do it again.
