#4407 new defect

Blackmagic/video signal to v4l2 loopback device has hickups

Description

Summary of the bug:
I try to use a v4l2 loopback device for playback my Blackmagic Decklink card but the video stalls multiple times per second.
When I playback a video to the device ffmpeg -re -i bbb_sunflower_1080p_30fps_normal.mp4 -f v4l2 /dev/video0 it looks fine. Also when I record my bmd device to a video file ffmpeg -f decklink -i DeckLink\ SDI\ \(1\)@8 output.mkv I get a great result. But the combination BMD->V4l2loopback seems lagging.

I tried to play with -rtbufsize, -vsync, bmdtools and piping through the matroska container but none seem the solution.

How to reproduce:

$ ffmpeg -v 9 -loglevel 99 -f decklink -i DeckLink\ SDI\ \(1\)@8 -f v4l2 /dev/video0

Received signal 2: terminating.

The dub frames seems stable after initialization, the load of the computer is 0.3 and the memory is 90% free.

When I playback my /dev/video0 with mpv mpv tv:// I get the following errors (the seems sync with the frame freeze):
Non-monotonic video pts: 0.000000 <= 0.00000
--no-correct-pts with mpv omits the errors but not solve the problem.

Hopefully someone has some ideas.
