avformat/smacker: Improve timestamps

A Smacker file can contain up to seven audio tracks. Up until now,
the pts for the i. audio packet contained in a Smacker frame was
simply the end timestamp of the last i. audio packet contained in
an earlier Smacker frame.

The problem with this is that a Smacker stream need not contain data in
every Smacker frame and so the current i. audio packet present may come
from a different underlying stream than the last i. audio packet
contained in an earlier frame.

The sample hypnotix.smk* exhibits this. It has three audio tracks and
the first of the three has a longer first packet, so that the audio for
the first track is contained in only 235 packets contained in the first
235 Smacker frames; the end timestamp of this track is 166696 (about 7.56s
at a timebase of 1/22050); the other two audio tracks both have 253 packets
contained in the first 253 Smacker frames. Up until now, the 236th
packet of the second track being the first audio packet in the 236th
Smacker frame would get the end timestamp of the last first audio packet
from the last Smacker frame containing a first audio packet and said
last audio packet is the first audio packet from the 235th Smacker frame
from the first audio track, so that the timestamp is 166696. In contrast,
the 236th packet from the third track (whose packets contain the same number
of samples as the packets from the second track) has a timestamp of
156116 (because its timestamp is derived from the end timestamp of the
235th packet of the second audio track). In the end, the second track
ended up being 177360/22050 s = 8.044s long; in contrast, the third
track was 166780/22050 s = 7.56s long which also coincided with the

This commit fixes this by not using timestamps from other tracks for
a packet's pts.
