Hi All,
I've been recoding FreeviewHD for a little while now and it is going  
great except for one thing. It looks like skipping isn't going to a  
keyframe some of the time. Sometimes it works and sometimes not. When  
it doesn't I get to see the usual pattern of macroblocks from previous  
frames in the wrong places. Looking in the recordedseek table shows  
marks at around 0.9s intervals and appears to match how long it takes  
to get a good picture. There is not much on the logs that is different  
when it works and fails. There are some of these:

2011-11-07 23:21:59.804 [h264_vdpau @ 0xb4c92f60]mmco: unref short failure
2011-11-07 23:21:59.889 Player(6): Waited 100ms for video buffers  

Does anyone else have a similar set up and perfect skipping?
