The avfoundation device is under reconstruction. It includes cooperation
with several people and it seems it is not on the edge of being finished.

For the time being you might checkout "avf2" or "avfarc" branch on my
github repo:


The avf2 implementation is far superior to what is currently in FFmpeg
but I cannot guarantee that all your problems are solved.

If needed you should easily be able to rebase all the patches there to
current FFmpeg git HEAD.


p.s. Audio frame drops happen more often the more video processing you
do during capturing. Thus all video processing should preferably be done
after capturing.
