The STREAMOFF should be on OUTPUT indeed, because that immediately
removes any OUTPUT buffers from the queue, so there is nothing to be
encoded to wait for anymore.

The "All OUTPUT buffers dequeued" part is correct, though. The last
OUTPUT buffer in the flush sequence is considered encoded after the
application dequeues the corresponding CAPTURE buffer is dequeued and
that buffer is marked with the V4L2_BUF_FLAG_LAST flag.

Best regards,
Tomasz
