Dear FFmpeg Developers,
If FFmpeg is able to of the timestamp correction, there is bug.
If FFmpeg is not able to of the timestamp correction, there is a project
open-source. Maybe FFmpeg' experts can include it as a library.
May you want for reproduce?
The sample file (On a Media Player software, I played only a few scenes
The original video:
Original timestamp: 10:58
Timestamp still remains with the original video (10:58!?). Therefore,
need fix the timestamp.
While FFmpeg can't do this, The Project Meteorite (MKV Repair Engin) can do.
But the Meteorite is outdated (stuck issue). Therefore, firstly the file
need remuxed with FFmpeg before Meteorite.
ffmpeg-3.1.5 -i "ElephantsDream_only_a_few_scenes.mkv" -c:v copy -c:a
copy -sn "ElephantsDream_only_a_few_scenes_remuxed.mkv"
Why v3.1.5? Can be use any build of FFmpeg but not after 3.1.5. Because
of on all later/GIT versions after version 3.1.5, FFmpeg can't remuxed
properly. Something must have changed after v3.1.5.
As you can see duration of
"ElephantsDream_only_a_few_scenes_remuxed.mkv" file, FFmpeg couldn't
correct the timestamp.
Andrew Barnert forked the Meteorite: https://github.com/abarnert/meteorite
Chris Bielow "removed unnecessary wx-includes for the CLI version":
Use meteorite-cli file is enough. Run:
>> meteorite-cli ElephantsDream_only_a_few_scenes_remuxed.mkv
Created repair file will be
Finally, the new correct timestamp of repaired file: 01:42 (only
My request to experts:
Gain to FFmpeg the ability of correct timestamp feature of the Meteorite
project. All sources in here: https://github.com/cbielow/meteorite
If it possible to implemented, no need will be remux and meteorite.
