OK for h264, there should be some way to figure that. For mpeg-4 in avi
It get no pts/dts differences at all when stream contains B frames, even
with -genpts.

Say my mpeg-2 comes from mov, parser won't be invoked and has_b_frames
never set. Then gxf muxer won't ever set B frame :(
Are you ok if I implement a very simple frame type detection in gxf
muxer ? I think I need to detect closed gop also.
