Carl, the timecode track is still very important in a broadcast /
professional environment.
it is used by video editors and audio mixers as a reference tool for
numerous functions.

again, I have only noticed the problem with Drop Frame Timecode. For
some reason,
FFMPEG 1.2 and the two other builds tested cannot correctly copy the
DF timecode track using  "-c:v copy"
