[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH] ffmpeg: use actual packet pts when discarding for the copypriorss option

From: Justin Ruggles <justin.ruggles at gmail.com>

The ist->pts value at this point does not necessarily match the actual packet
pts, which is what should be used to decide whether to discard the packet.
Without this change, some video packets that have pts on or after the start
time are getting discarded when they should not be.
