The TS Muxer and the mpeg video packetizer plugin, used to stream out, does
not support fast forward for example.
It need some developments but I'm not even sure it is possible...
It seems possible to recalculate PTS/DTS values in mpeg video packetizer
pluign (I've tried it, it seems ok), but what about the frame rate value ?
Should VLC send only one frame on two with a x2 speed ? Should VLC send only
Intra picture when sending with x4 speed to limit bandwidth usage ? I have no
idea on how to implement it.
