Hello Guys,

sorry for opening this issue once again, but I'm trying to deal with quite
the same problem.
I'm quite new in this field. Let me try to give you an overview.
I have several video stream from several synchronised cameras which I would
like to save. For a later analysis I need to jump to a specific frame in
each of these videos. To do this I thinking to use the timecode. 
As far as I understood it correctly, that what I'm looking for is the "burnt
in timecode" (BITC) which is keyed into each frame content, right?
The normal timecode is keyed in the header of GOP, which will allow me to do
a kind of estimation, right?
The general question is, does only AVI or other video container, like MOV
allow BITC? 
It this feature related to the codec I'm using, as well? Which codecs are
supporting BITC?

Thank you in advance.
Best Greg
