Claim of US Patent No. 10,681,386

1. A video encoding system, the system comprising:a capture device, wherein the capture device is configured to group individual frame data into uncompressed frame buffers;
an encoder coupled to the capture device, wherein the encoder is configured to compress frame data according to a compression algorithm into an elementary stream layer of video data;
a multiplexer coupled to the encoder, wherein the multiplexer is configured to:
obtain a set of data for a video frame in an elementary stream layer of video data from the encoder;
identify that the set of data for the video frame is complete; and
as a result of identifying that the set of data for the video frame is complete, multiplexing an end-of-frame indicator to the set of data in a transport stream layer of a video stream container into a multiplexed media stream that includes the end-of-frame indicator in the transport stream layer and the set of video data in the elementary stream layer of the multiplexed media stream, wherein the multiplexer is configured to identify that the set of data for the video frame buffer is complete by identifying that no video data has been received for some predetermined amount of time; and
a transmitter configured to transmit the multiplexed media stream including the set of data in the elementary stream layer of the video stream and the end-of-frame indicator in the transport stream layer of the video stream multiplexed together.
