[vlc-devel] [PATCH 00/17] Fixing normal_time handling

Actually no. We should just ditch GET_TIME entirely, and report the offset from timestamps to normal play time when that offset changes (as opposed to when the PCR changes). The offset is essentially the PTS value corresponding to NPT zero.
Reporting values that change all the time does not make sense. Or rather it's impossible.
The issue is what to do with GET_POSITION. If there is a known length, then we can compute position as:
NPT = PTS - PTS_offset
Position = NPT / Length
But is there a demuxer that can compute a position but not a total length?
