How does that line cause the problem? I'm not really sure what it does.

It may well be in practice that mp3lame is the only codec affected. In
theory though, I don't see how a VBR codec can be expected to guess in
advance exactly how long its audio frame will be?

It makes more sense to me to do it inside the audio loop than as an
addition at the end (ideally neither video nor audio frames would
require flushing after their respective loops). Also, it's easily
fixed but a_mux might not even be defined in the place you use it,
causing a NULL pointer dereference.

The other advantage of doing it inside the audio loop is that the
various muxer time adjustments and status messages will be correctly
updated too.

If there's something you don't like about the coding style in my
patch, feel free to change it, but I think it's the right place to put
