[Libav-user] How to handle video muxing to file when real frame rate varies from the specified frame rate

Sorry, still lost.

I’m trying to tackle this problem because I’m experiencing it. I know that depending on the computer specs and other factors, the rendering engine is producing less frames than the desired because I have a frame rate counter.

Please take into account that while Im referring to specific lines of muxing.c I have already a program based on muxing.c that is receiving the produced frames and muxing them. I’ve based myself on the muxing.c example and the modifications were very little.

This is the first time I’m actually trying to change pts value.

My modifications were on the equivalent to line 331 -> https://github.com/FFmpeg/FFmpeg/blob/master/doc/examples/muxing.c#L331 <https://github.com/FFmpeg/FFmpeg/blob/master/doc/examples/muxing.c#L331>

However, there is also a rescale at line 107 -> https://github.com/FFmpeg/FFmpeg/blob/master/doc/examples/muxing.c#L107 <https://github.com/FFmpeg/FFmpeg/blob/master/doc/examples/muxing.c#L107>

I’m not assigning dts myself. 

Does anyone know an example that shows how to tackle this problem?

Maybe everything works without pts changing? (Asking 'coz you are very likely to modify the example for the purpose)
