m2v: wrong duration

Reported by: cbsrobot Owned by:

Description

When converting any file to a m2v and checking the resulting file, the duration is not correctly calculated. mplayer shows also wrong duration. Quicktime and Mediainfo show the correct duration.

example:
ffmpeg -i fate/aletrek-rle.mov -target pal-dvd -f mpeg2video -an aletrek-rle.m2v
[...]
Duration: 00:00:03.33

ffprobe aletrek-rle.m2v
[...]
Duration: 00:00:00.76

mediainfo aletrek-rle.m2v
[...]
Duration : 3s 400ms

mplayer -vo null -ao null -frames 0 -identify aletrek-rle.m2v
[...]
ID_LENGTH=0.77
