When streaming, the server inserts "clock references" every now and
then, which are derived from a 90 kHz clock. The client must examine
these references and see if there is a drift with its own clock : we
could be displaying the images a bit faster than they arrive, which
would cause an underflow after several hours. However, we must
eliminate the network jitter, so we calculate the drift with a mean
of x values of the clock references (x is the number we choose in
That's the same problem whenever b_pace_control = 0, for instance
with the PVR input. But the ivtv drivers only the packets in burst,
so there is A LOT of jitter there. The usual value for cr_average is
too small and the presentation timestamps get screwed up with the
fast variations of the references, so it is suggested to raise it.
