how is the calculation being done? do you extract the bitrate from the 
stream data, or do you use a different method? I'd advocate *that* 
different method though. actually, what i mean is, since we have the 
stat of the source stream about the time it has connected and the number 
of bytes it has read from the encoder, we can use this to calculate the 
bitrate instead of trying to extract hard info from stream. this will 
work with many things in general, including VBR (we're now taking the 
average bitrate, not a particular bitrate of a frame). let me know if 
this is how you do it ...
