##I'll try to explain full story in stages in best possible way, bear with my english##
###I don't know if its a bug so decide yourself and if it comes out as a bug then submit it (I support FFMPEG :D)###

I was surfing WWW and suddenly I stumble upon a page which has a video embedded into it which I like and want to download and keep it for future reference. Its a Stem Cell Video claiming to provide cure for anything to everything concerned to humans. And the story starts :-

1st) a) original page link which has video embedded into it -> http://thelongevitystudy.com/160725A.php

b) page source and network monitor tool of browser tells that video link is -> http://video.limelight.com/player/fp10loader.swf?deepLink=true&playerForm=3408cce3252244e9b8db28df9f21f924&channelId=dd542dc018c44edc8bdcafe9cd63b1b7&85527519

c) video link mentioned in 1st)b) looks like its an swf player loading video from net, and not a direct link to video file. I narrow down the video link to http://video.limelight.com/player/fp10loader.swf?channelId=dd542dc018c44edc8bdcafe9cd63b1b7&85527519 i.e i)limelight player with ii)channel id - dd542dc018c44edc8bdcafe9cd63b1b7&85527519 *Its a video in 2 parts*

2nd) I use youtube-dl.exe to download video with command - youtube-dl.exe "limelight:channel:dd542dc018c44edc8bdcafe9cd63b1b7&85527519" It downloads both the parts in best quality. I now have 2 videos i.e 2 parts - p1 & p2 of a longer single video played online.

3rd) a) Now I wanna join and keep a single file. So I use ffmpeg to join both parts. I download ffmpeg latest version from site and join video files with it. ffmpeg version N-81664-g6f062eb

b) this new version of ffmpeg gives an output-file-joined.mp4 which has correct file size and time duration. This combined video file plays 1st part of video correctly but doesnt plays 2nd part video at all. However, audio is playing fine irrespective of video part.

4th) a) Now, I use an older version of ffmpeg which came automaically with "thekmplayer". its installed by defalt with and in the directory of "thekmplayer". ffmpeg version N-76347-gdd36749

b) now this older version of ffmpeg "thekmplayer version" joined both the parts (same video files as before) and produced a combined.mp4 file which is playing both the parts flawlessly. audio is also fine.

*Irrespective of files being joined, their type, make, codec, other details, etc and of ffmpeg older and newer version, thier build, code etc, one thing comes out in the end, that, files to be joined are not playing correctly when joined by new version of ffmpeg and are playing flawlessly when joined by old version of ffmpeg embedded into thekmplayer which concludes that there is something happening with newer version of ffmpeg itself. Other factors like files to be joined & system on which files are joined etc are constant. Audio is not being mentioned for the fat that it remains same in all scenarios & plays fine everytime.

Technical Details :-

5th) I used same command for joining on both the older and newer version of ffmpeg - "ffmpeg -f concat -i list.txt -c copy joined.mp4"

6th) cmd output - (first in cmd output is new version of ffmpeg and later output is of older ffmpeg version of kmplayer),(there is this message in new version cmd output inbetween if its relevant- [mp4 @ 00000000004be8c0] Using AVStream.codec to pass codec parameters to muxers is deprecated, use AVStream.codecpar instead.) :-

8th) cmd window youtube-dl output (youtube-dl downloads any link video with best quality by default or we can manually select it) :-

a) firstly, I get link and its files info with command - youtube-dl -F "limelight:channel:dd542dc018c44edc8bdcafe9cd63b1b7"

(capital -F option is used to get info and its different from small -f option which is for format selection). Here we can see that best quality is listed for both parts & have same details for both parts which are downloaded later on as p1 and p2.

b) Now, files download at their best quality (default) with command - youtube-dl "limelight:channel:dd542dc018c44edc8bdcafe9cd63b1b7"

Here thing to be noted is that after download completes and 2parts p1 & p2 are obtained, an operating system (win7) file properties details dialog is checked for both files which gives details for p1 file as "resolution=1024x576 data.rate=1064kbps total.bitrate=1192kbps frame.rate=23fps". For 2nd part its a little bit strange as details show "resolution=1024x576 data.rate=168kbps total.bitrate=296kbps frame.rate=23fps", I re-downloaded 2nd part i.e p2 file with "-f https-1072" option for best quality but resulting file showed same details as before.

cmd output for download of 2parts p1 & p2 :-

9th) a) win7 file property dialogue tells all the files - 2 separate video parts considered combined and both the older and newer version ffmpeg created joined files have the same file.size=153MB, duration=54:07, resolution=1024x576, frame rate=23fps, container=mp4. However, according to same file property dialogue, 1st part p1 data.rate=1064kbps and total.bitrate=1192kbps and for 2nd part p2 data.rate=168kbps total.bitrate=296kbps. Incase of both joined output files from newer & older version of ffmpeg, data.rate=263kbps, total.bitrate=391kbps which is different from original files p1 & p2.

b) VLC Media Codec Info tool details that every property of all the file are same, except frame rate which is 23.976000 for original 2parts p1 & p2 and 23.975358 for joined file created from newer version of ffmpeg and 23.975357 for joined file created by older version of ffmpeg respectively.
