This is what I am doing in my local tree.

in ffdirac_header

st->need_parsing = AVSTREAM_PARSE_HEADERS;
( This ensures that the decoder is invoked during av_find_stream_info

in ffdirac_gptopts

if (st->codec->time_base.num && st->codec->time_base.den)
		st->time_base = st->codec->time_base;

It appears to be an overkill to check the codec timebase and set the
stream time base in every call to ffdirac_gptopts, but the check is
required if we don't want to decode the Dirac sequence header in
