I think for resolution/profile/level changes you have a good point, as
you said, we need to start a new stream (new header, new IDR). Maybe
then we should simply require the driver to allocate enough buffer to
support the highest bitrate for the selected resoltion/profile/level?
Though, this could create situation where we waste a lot of memory. On
the other side, if you need to reallocate your buffers on bitrate
change, it might create a visible freeze.
