> How does it differ from stream_tell(stream) ?

it contains the return value of stream_tell(stream) at the beginning
of a packet.

in a generic way:


. skip junk, padding, sync to next packet
. parse packet data


but actually it's not used at such detail, and not even implemented
correctly in all demuxers. afair it's only used to display file position
at OSD, and for some low-level demuxer debug messages.
