So CC'ing the Debian XBMC/Kodi maintainer. I would welcome the resurrection of avformat flush. This is the only internal API used by XBMC/Kodi indeed. To work wih the public API I carry a patch  reimplementing the function in Kodi, but I would prefer using it as part of the public API.
CC-ing Joakim who started using the function in XBMC and FernetMenta who also worked on this part of the code. First related commit I found was tnis one: commit ba44e48ca680512dad789dda504020bf59570986 Author: elupus <elupus@svn> Date: Mon Feb 1 04:41:03 2010 +0000 changed: use lavf's proper method to flush data after input stream seek changed: make sure we flush demuxer on dvd seeks git-svn-id: https://xbmc.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/xbmc/trunk@27348 568bbfeb-2a22-0410-94d2-cc84cf5bfa90 Cheers, Balint > > Best regards, > Andreas > > > 1: https://ffmpeg.org/pipermail/ffmpeg-devel/2014-September/163635.html  https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/pkg-multimedia/kodi.git/commit/?id=dc8ea7b87cf03f034bd7b07cfa246f1760b30f31 _______________________________________________ ffmpeg-devel mailing list email@example.com http://ffmpeg.org/mailman/listinfo/ffmpeg-devel
