The default framerate is 25. Time from one frame to the next is 0.04s.
The 80th frame has timestamp 80*0.04 = 3.20s
The 81th frame has timestamp 81*0.04 = 3.24s
The 82th frame has timestamp 82*0.04 = 3.28s
Which means there is a frame in the [3.20 .. 3.21] interval, but there 
is no frame in the [3.25 .. 3.26] interval.
