There can be more than 1 frame per packet and your code assuming that there is only 1 frame per packet.
You should do smth like that:

AVPacket tmp_pkt;
int size;


tmp_pkt.data = pkt.data;
tmp_pkt.size = pkt.size;

while ( (size = avcodec_decode_video2(ctx,frame,&got_pict,&tmp_pkt) ) > 0)
	tmp_pkt.data += size;
	tmp_pkt.size -=  size;
