Timestamp lost after calling MFXVideoVPP_RunFrameVPPAsync


I'm using the DirectShow Sample 5.0.461.91752 doing some test. Is there any case that the output of MFXVideoVPP_RunFrameVPPAsync will have a timestamp of zero but the image data is correct?

The issue is that, when I'm using a physical USB camera, things work correctly. But when come to e2eSoft VCam, a virtual software camera, after calling MFXVideoVPP_RunFrameVPPAsync, the timestamps of each output surface becomes zero. But by decoding and examine the image data, it shows no problem at all. So it seems only the timestamp lost!

Below is the code generates the problem, in base_encoder.cpp

mfxStatus CBaseEncoder::RunEncode(IUnknown *pSample, mfxFrameSurface1* pFrameSurface)
    if (m_bUseVPP)
        mfxSyncPoint syncP = {0};
            sts = m_pmfxVPP->RunFrameVPPAsync(pFrameSurface, m_ppFrameSurfaces[nIndex], 0, &syncP); //the timestamp lost!

            if (MFX_WRN_DEVICE_BUSY == sts)
        } while (sts == MFX_WRN_DEVICE_BUSY);        

I noticed that the call may return MFX_ERR_MORE_DATA, but in my case it did return MFX_ERR_NONE. So I suppose the timestamp should not be zero. Again, when I'm using the USB camera, it goes correctly.
