Description

This issue can be reproduced using
ffmpeg version N-63861-g958168d Copyright (c) 2000-2014 the FFmpeg developers

steps to reproduce.

  1. convert attached mp4 into mpg: ffmpeg.exe -i "numbers fps 25.mp4" 25.mpg
  2. convert generated mpg to mp4 using -ss 0: ffmpeg.exe -ss 0 -i 25.mpg 25.mp4

then you can easily find that 25.mp4 doesn't start with the correct frame (original mp4 is a video with frames showing number 000 to 499, but 25.mp4 starts with 12)

I also spent little time to debug. seems the mpg file converted from mp4 has a non-zero offset

rhbc73 debug[V]: get a complete frame [12] Best time:[91800 - 48600] = [43200] = 0.480000

videostreamoffset = pFormatCtx->start_time, so we can see offset is in pts. if I call av_seek_frame(48600, AVSEEK_FLAG_BACKWARD) then
I couldn't get a complete frame until [DTS:88200 PTS:91800] KEY FRAME packet is readout, but if I call av_seek(45000, AVSEEK_FLAG_BACKWARD) then I could successfully. This means seek is based on dts?

Then we can see the img-001.jpeg is not the first frame we want

The following shows the first frame (of the first gop):

$ ffmpeg -i out.mpg -vframes 1 out.jpg

The following commands output the first frame of the second gop:

  • Keywords regression added
  • Priority changed from normal to important

Looks like a regression since 3fa72de8 / 56ee3f9d

I think I am experiencing the same issue, with h.264 MP4 files that are recorded by a Panasonic LX100 camera.

I took a short example video file using the camera, taking a shot of a screen showing a millisecond counter for easier identification of individual frames (the display refresh rate is 60Hz, the video taken with 25fps, the clock display refreshed each 10ms, but the relevant result is that each frame shows a different number). You can download this (3.5 MB) video file here.

When replayed in the camera, the first frame shown shows time: 3685ms on the display.
When replayed with software like mpv, avidemux, kdenlive or alike that uses ffmpeg as a library for video decoding, the first frames a not displayed, but instead the first frame shows time: 3768ms - and that is actually the third frame.

I have looked at timestamp dump outputs of ffprobe and MP4Box, and it seems that while MP4Box shows reasonable DTS and CTS times, where the first frame is actually to be displayed, first, the ffprobe output shows implausible DTS and PTS timestamps - they are always the same, and that would mean to display a B-frame before the first I-frame is decoded!

For reference, I have uploaded the output of ffprobe and MP4Box for this example video:
ffprobe output

The mpv developers have found a workaround for this bug, see:

https://github.com/mpv-player/mpv/issues/1341

Of course, instead of putting a workaround like this in every ffmpeg using software, it would be better to have it fixed in ffmpeg :-)
