Here is input file (I have no idea how to upload image here, I just uploaded to github and posted link to it). The output 1.mp4 has only one frame and it has DARKER colors. Colors are changed. So basically, open output 1.mp4 in in any video player, then screenshot screen, paste somewhere, use color picker and you will see that colors are changed. It should not happen. Here is input file 1.png (and I dont know how to upload 1.mp4, but you can easily make it by using ffmpeg command line I posted above). For reference, here is my old ticket:
