Description (last modified by ubitux)

The test file can be found in http://www.cccp-project.net/beta/test_files/ under the filename given in the log. As you can see, the first timestamp is 42 instead of 0. This is because pkt_dts returns the second packet's timestamp, instead of the first packet's. Apparently, pkt_dts is supposed to follow the codec delay (and in the case, the codec delay is 1), and the first packet's dts is supposed to be negative. However, this is not how it works for vfw-muxed MKV (this file; has DTS starting with 0), mpeg4 in AVI files (have DTS starting with 0), and mpeg4 in OGM (has DTS starting ewith 0, and PTS incorrectly set to DTS).

Log follows. It has the patch "[PATCH] ffprobe: output best_effort_timestamp" from ffmpeg-devel applied to print the best_effort_timestamp. If you want "full uncut console output", please increase TRAC's ticket description limit to at least 566 KB.

[mpeg4 @ 0x91779a0] Video uses a non-standard and wasteful way to store B-frames ('packed B-frames'). Consider using a tool like VirtualDub or avidemux to fix it.

Actually not sure about mpeg4 in OGM. But I suspect that case is messed up in its own way.
