I got a question regarding the message:

ES_OUT_SET_(GROUP_)PCR  is called too late (pts_delay increased to %d ms)

from es_out.c. I run an AAC encoded stream which is played back through
VLC. After a while - which can be longer or shorter - VLC starts
outputting this message and then plays silence for a few seconds (I
guess it's rebuffering).

Since the problem occurs on Linux (using libvlc 1.1.0) and Windows
(using vlc 1.1.0) I suppose it's not implementation or platform related.

My question: what does this message mean and wehre does the condition
come from? Is the stream encoding bad?
