  • Keywords mov added

Is the problem also reproducible with current FFmpeg git head?
Does -avoid_negative_ts 1 make a difference?

comment:3 Changed 5 years ago by julian

yes same in GIT HEAD and -avoid_negative_ts 1 doesnt help:

./ffmpeg -i ../_elst.mkv -acodec copy -vcodec copy -avoid_negative_ts 1 ../_elst.mp4

I can't get what is broken.
media_time == -1 means an empty edit.
Empty edit is a feature of edit list.
Empty edit makes a duration of blank clip.
I guess another problem is there.
