For questions regarding the use of the ffmpeg API, please consult the
libav-user mailing list:

The "-re" option is a feature of the ffmpeg command line client. I
don't believe it is directly available in the API. OTOH, the filters
"realtime" and "arealtime" emulate this behavior (but not if you're
doing stream copy, obviously).

You may need to implement the same behavior in your program. Check this
code segment here:


and here:


The variable triggered by "re" is "rate_emu".
