Thanks for the quick reply!
With my real use-cases:
1. 9x 720p60 mpeg2 videos
- 4.0-rc6: ~12 frames per second are on time
- 4.0-rc6 + reverts: a stable 45 frames per second are on time
- 044307a9: 40-45 frames per second are on time
- 0a24802a: 45-46 frames per second are on time
2. 1080i30 mpeg2 videos
- 4.0-rc6: 5 videos
- 044307a9: 10 videos
- 0a24802a: 10 videos
So you basically beat my baseline too, good job, thanks a lot! Any
chance you can sneak this into 4.0 ?
