When I extract samples from an audio file, or when I seek in an audio file,
I can see exactly where I am, thanks to the following code:

   // position in microseconds:
   1000000 * (packet.pts * ((float) stream->time_base.num /

It works great with mp3 files, but it's sometimes not accurate with ogg
files: sometimes, the position I get is approximately 10 ms in advance
(actually 448 samples in advance).
It appears that sometimes, for ogg files only, packet.pts (and packet.dts
too) is a bit in advance, and then, gets back to normal after a couple of
Also, I don't know if it's related, but with ogg files, I also get a lot of

Here is my code:

Do you know where it comes from and maybe, how to fix it?

Thanks for your help.
