I tested the DeckLink drivers on Linux, and they very often fail to 
provide proper timestamps for the audio and video they produce, there is 
also a noticable clock skew after a few hours if you use their video 
clock, and they also skip frames (different number of audio and video 
frames) in the event of a signal loss.

To work around this problem, there are the audio_pts and video_pts 
options, so you can customize where you want your timestamps to come 
from. In my experience, wallclock is the only thing that works 
reliably, so I typically use these options:

-vsync 1
-video_pts wallclock
-audio_pts wallclock
-af aresample=async=1
