When running with mediacodec on the fire stick 4K, there is a problem
with MPEG2. Perhaps the 4K does not support MPEG2 or the interlacing is
causing a problem. What appears to happen is that we get the situation
where we have done avcodec_send_packet until it returns AVERROR(EAGAIN).
The avcodec_receive_frame also returns AVERROR(EAGAIN) and this
continues forever, we never get a frame out of it. With h264 it works
fine. If there is no MPEG2 support, maybe we should get an error return
or it should revert to software decoding. Is there anything ffmpeg can
do to avoid this, or do I have something wrong in my code?
I have set ffmpeg debug logging and captured the log. That is here ->
The code where we process packets is here ->
