Ah, so you're observing an issue with ffmpeg.

Could you show us the ffmpeg command line and the complete, uncut
console output (if it isn't cluttered with hundreds of such warnings -
else cut them off after a few or edit the middle out).

Assuming these messages are from ffmpeg: ffmpeg doesn't set
restrictions on itself which would lead to these messages.
