I think I do not understand your question :-/ What references between frames
The whole point of this closed GOP/broken link thing is that in the
transmission/file the frames
are not necessarily appearing in display order.
Frames are marked with a "temporal offset" value that determines the display
order of the frames
in a GOP.
B-frames "refer" to a preceding P/I and a following P/I. "Preceding" and
"following" in the stream, not
regarding to display order. So a B-frame to be displayed after an I-frame
may occur before the
I-frame in the stream. Actually this is what happens "normally" in
DVB-transmissions. It makes life
of HW-encoders easier. But that way the B-frames refer to a P that is in the
last GOP. And it may not be
decoded properly if the preceding GOP is missing.
Hmm.... I wonder if I made myself clear :-/
