frame-level threaded decoding

Post by malcolmb »

Hey, should I change my usage pattern for how I decode frames since frame-level threading is now supported with some codecs?
I ask this because since I'm only giving the decoder one frame at a time, and (at least in the old code) waiting until it's done that frame before moving on, I don't see how it's going to be able to do frame-level threading. It seems like I should be giving multiple packets to the decoder at a time, no?

Any pointers?
