[Libav-user] regarding libavcodec method - av_parser_parse2 usage

I have a multi threaded video application using x264 and ffmpeg. In the
decoding flow, I have a question on av_parser_parse2.

I use it as below.

int len = 0;

len =

Here I get the return value len = in_buf_size. But the avpkt.data is not
getting filled in. It gets zero, so is the avpkt.size

To check if the error is due to the usage of AVPacket, I changed it to

uint8_t* pOutBuf = new uint8_t[50000];


int iOutSize = 100;

len =

Here, av_parser_parse2 changed the '5' returned to all the pOutBuf
locations to zero and the output size varable also got set as 0.  I tried a
uint8_t pointer without any memory allocated as well.

Nothing gives me  a valid output pointer, but in all cases, the parsing
happens for the entire input variable ( as indicated by the return value of
the function).

Could any of you please give me more information on this?

Thanks in advance,
