This is odd, both sinks seem to have gone to PAUSED 20 seconds into playback,
then back to PLAYING after 12 seconds.

But yes, the logs do show the image sink waits for a large timestamp (more than
a minute into the the future) at some point, so that would pause video for that
amount of time at least. Presumably lots of frames dropped after that as, when
timestamps go back down, they'd all be considered to be too late.

That "high timestamp" goes on for a couple dozen frames, so it's not a single
corrupt timestamp. What's even more worrying is that, after these couple dozen
frames, timestamps go back to *before* the original timestamp series.

So the reason for the video pause seems to be the same (large timestamp causing
the sink to wait for that timestamp to happen before showing the frame), but
caused by a different issue. Maybe a bug in timestamp calculation, or some
offset that we don't take into account.

(mostly typing that out for my own memory once I get back to investigating

Is the issue repeatable, if you saved that stream ? If so, could I have it ?
