[Libav-user] Calculate total streamed in bytes

Hello everyone,

I want to show how much data is downloaded in my player, and I did as below,

            if (packet.data) {

                totalBytes += packet.size;



in a loop that uses av_read_frame

How ever, when I tested a video file that I know the size of the video
file, I see that totalBytes is always lower than the file size. How can I
calculate the exact value ?
