avienc: inserts too many (>90%) empty packets

Reported by: Andrew Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: avformat
Version: git-master Keywords: avi
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: no
Analyzed by developer: no

Description

Summary of the bug:
avienc insert 99% empty packets.

What for a strange code below?
How it is possible to compare the (pkt->dts) to the (avist->)packet_count?

avi_write_packet()
    while(enc->block_align==0 && \
          pkt->dts != AV_NOPTS_VALUE && \
          pkt->dts > avist->packet_count && \
          enc->codec_id != AV_CODEC_ID_XSUB){
        AVPacket empty_packet;

        if( pkt->dts - avist->packet_count > 60000){

How to reproduce:
Apply avienc_show_emtied.diff patch (see attachment).

I believe that behaviour is as expected/intended.

Stream #0:0: Video: mpeg4 (FMP4 / 0x34504D46), yuv420p, 640x480 [SAR 1:1 DAR 4:3], q=2-31, 2k tbn, 2k tbc

Your stream time base is 2kHz, the only way to handle that for AVI is to have 2000 packets for each second of video. The 2kHz time base is necessary to accurately represent all possible time stamps of the input stream (actually 1 kHz might be enough, but 1 kHz or 2 kHz does not make much of a difference).
If that is not what you want, specify whatever time base/frame rate you want FFmpeg to use.

Yes, You’re quite, it is "feature" the avi format.
