rtpjitterbuffer outputs same buffer timestamp after input gap

Vinod Kesti
I am using below pipeline to decode RTP over UDP stream. Pipeline works perfectly when input stream is seamless. But When there is discontinuity (input missing for some time) in the input then decoder repeats same buffer time stamps roughly equal to current running time after that. Below is the pipeline used for decoding.
gst-launch-1.0 udpsrc port=9000 caps=application/x-rtp,clock-rate=90000,payload=33 ! rtpjitterbuffer latency=400 ! rtpmp2tdepay ! decodebin ! video/x-raw ! checksumsink sync=true

Here I have stopped input after 9 secs of pipeline and input is resumed after 10 secs, 0:00:09.824687222 timestamp is repeated 230 times with decreasing timestamp log from base decider class.

This warning log is seen with every frame when buffer has same time stamp.
WARN videodecoder gstvideodecoder.c:2775:gst_video_decoder_prepare_finish_frame:<avdec_mpeg2video0> decreasing timestamp (0:00:00.646061732 < 0:00:09.624687222)

This issue is not seen when rtpjitterbuffer is removed from the pipeline.

Am I missing some thing while configuring rtpjitterbuffer ??
The expected output is after input gap the buffer timestamp should be adjusted to the running time of the pipeline.

One more observation.

output of rtpjitterbuffer outputs same buffers timestamp always. Is this the expected behaviour ??

I root caused the issue. I think tsdemux is not handling discontinuity properly.

When there is discontinuity in the RTP input stream rtpjitterbuffer tags bufferas GST_BUFFER_FLAG_DISCONT after discontinuity.

tsdemux reset segment and timestamp when buffer is received with discontinuity. In mpegts_base_chain function below marked code flushes the demuxer and resets the time stamp and segmet due to which the next buffer onward timestamps and segment base starts again from 0. Stream time stamps goes past and all pluigins cribs about the timestamp.

    GST_DEBUG_OBJECT (base, "Got DISCONT buffer, flushing");
    res = mpegts_base_drain (base);
    if (G_UNLIKELY (res != GST_FLOW_OK))
      return res;

    mpegts_base_flush (base, FALSE);
    /* In the case of discontinuities in push-mode with TIME segment
     * we want to drop all previous observations (hard:TRUE) from
     * the packetizer */
    if (base->mode == BASE_MODE_PUSHING
        && base->segment.format == GST_FORMAT_TIME) {
      mpegts_packetizer_flush (base->packetizer, TRUE);
      mpegts_packetizer_clear (base->packetizer);
    } else
      mpegts_packetizer_flush (base->packetizer, FALSE);

In above case tsdemux should generate new segment with current time as base time ??
