michaelni - please explain what method you have in mind for adding 
timing information to the decode path for an h264 stream.

Earlier in this thread you mention libavfilter. My understanding is that 
a video filter processes AVFrames. Is the goal that this video filter 
set the pts value for each AVFrame? This has the downside that it won't 
work for '-vcodec copy'.

I was expecting a different approach, where AVPacket.pts was set prior 
to the h264 decoder. If it was implemented this way, would that mean 
that the place to add code is the h264 parser?

Please let us know which approach you have in mind.
