PTS/DTS calculations

Hello,

I am using the "simple_6_transcode_opaque - async - ffmpeg" example and would like to fix the PTS / DTS calculations.

The PTS is accessible by pMfxBitstream->TimeStamp which is correct.

Acording to the Source code and the Documentation Media SDK 1.6 introduced automatic computation of DTS which is accessible by

pMfxBitstream->DecodeTimeStamp

However I am getting only garbage for DTS. Here is an example when I try to encode a video:

PTS V:      0, DTS:  -7200
PTS V:      4, DTS: -17996
PTS V:      2, DTS:  -7198
PTS V:      1, DTS:      1
PTS V:      3, DTS:  -3597
PTS V:      7, DTS: -14393
PTS V:      5, DTS:  -3595
PTS V:      6, DTS:  -3594
PTS V:     11, DTS: -17989
PTS V:      9, DTS:  -7191
PTS V:      8, DTS:      8
PTS V:     10, DTS:  -3590
PTS V:     15, DTS: -17985
PTS V:     13, DTS:  -7187
PTS V:     12, DTS:     12
PTS V:     14, DTS:  -3586

Any ideas what is wrong that the DTS is incorrect?

Thanks, Artem

Input and output pts/dts are measured in 1/90000 sec units. Do you set/interpret them correctly?

-7200 is most likely a -80ms (-2 frames at 25p/50i fps)...

Hello,

thanks for the reply, but this does not make any sense for me. If -7200 is -80ms for the first frame then why has Frame 4 a DTS of 1 and Frame 11 a DTS of 8?

If you pass incorrect input pts then you shouldn't expect any correct output pts/dts.

I think output dts 1, 8, 12 are for frames with pts==dts (most likely, B-frames) and are simply copied from input pts.

Other dts values are very similar to be in 1/90kHz units: -17996-4 = -200ms, etc...

Hello,

many thanks. The input PTS was bad / the example source code had badly implemented it. After fixing the input PTS I got a correct output DTS now.
