Answering my own message the second time because Win10 default mail client
cut off my text.


After some more digging I found out that my videos in question have
incorrect starting AVFrame.pkt_dts coded

and start at around 0.5 seconds. Which explains my 13 frame discrepancy when
calculating current_frame.


I now have a frame_offset that I calculate if I detect this discrepancy with

frame_offset = (pFrame->pkt_dts/pFrame->pkt_duration);


But is this really the best way to do that?


And event with corrected frames, my 

av_seek_frame(ptrFormatCtx_, -1, seekTarget, AVSEEK_FLAG_FRAME  |


still won't seek to first I-Frame backward. Is this because of incorrect
pkt_dts that start well into a file?

And also what do I generally do when this happens?
