 Yes, the developer doc isn't updated (I never update it myself) :((
So yes, for people starting on vlc it's not easy.
 If you have any questions, just ask them, vlc-devel@ is here for that,
you can also come to irc, a lot of developer are here

Anyway, about the input, I plan to remove all deprecated functions as
well as access1/demux1 support very soon (within 1-3 weeks), and I
will try to update the docs.

 You can try var_GetTime( p_input, "time" ) - p_input->i_pts_delay, it
should be more accurate, but I'm not that sure.
