// Timestamps are derived directly from the encoded media file and are commonly
// known as the presentation timestamp (PTS). Durations are a best-guess and
// are usually derived from the sample/frame rate of the media file.
// Due to encoding and transmission errors, it is not guaranteed that timestamps
// arrive in a monotonically increasing order nor that the next timestamp will
// be equal to the previous timestamp plus the duration.
// In the ideal scenario for a 25fps movie, buffers are timestamped as followed:
// Buffer0 Buffer1 Buffer2 ... BufferN
// Timestamp: 0us 40000us 80000us ... (N*40000)us
// Duration*: 40000us 40000us 40000us ... 40000us
// *25fps = 0.04s per frame = 40000us per frame
