Do I understand correctly that the output file 
is correct (as far as timecode is concerned) 
and that the message is the only bad thing?

(My problem is that I simply fail to understand 
what a "timecode" could be, so I typically don't 
understand the numerous reports connected to it.)

Iiuc, the message appears because ffmpeg (the 
executable) translates "-timecode" to "-gop_timecode" 
but neither encoder nor muxer react on the later 
option (but they apparently react to another 
setting from ffmpeg).
