Thanks for the report. I'm seeing a similar behavior and have been doing
some experiments with your patch, and trying different solutions as well.

My colleague Nicolas pointed out to me that crafting a video
with serie of black frames in QCIF resolution, would trigger the timeout:

gst-launch-1.0 videotestsrc pattern=black num-buffers=300 !
video/x-raw,format=I420,width=176,height=120 ! avenc_mpeg2video !
mpegvideoparse ! mpegtsmux ! filesink location=black-qcif-10s.ts

We are still doing some tests to see if we can come up with a proper
solution. I will keep you posted.

If you have some (public) bitstream that are known to timeout,
and that you could share with me, that would be nice, so I could
have a more complete set of samples.
