[Libav-user] Timestamping a live video feed with variable framerate

I am very sorry that I mistakenly sent incomplete mail previously.. please
ignore my previous mail !!
This is my first time with ffmpeg library. I am trying to encode a live
video feed which is coming from frame-grabber cards. This feed is having
variable frame rate and i have no control over it. Feed is captured using
Directshow's ISampleGrabber interface. Now when i try to encode this feed
using ffmpeg library my resulted video play back is either very slow or
very fast. I searched over internet and i suspect that I can control them
using timestamps. I am setting timestamp when i get frame from directshow
filter as per following code
_startTime = _lastTime;
_lastTime += CRefTime(pvi->AvgTimePerFrame);
pSample->SetTime( (REFERENCE_TIME *)&_startTime,
Now i want to use same timestamp while recording in ffmpeg.
My question is
can i use same timestamp in ffmpeg recording ?
how can I achieve that ?
right now if i use
frame->pts = timestamp;
before avcodec_encode_video() than av_write_frame() return negative value.
And recording does not happen. timestamp is __int64 type.
Thanks & Regards,
