Description

Summary of the bug: I have a really strange problem when using "-c:v h264_nvenc" and "tee muxer" both then the produced output file is having "is_avc=false" even i have checked the same input matroska file with another server running with Intel QuickSync "-c:v h264_qsv" with the same command then the produced output file is "is_avc=true".

The main reason that i want the "is_avc=true" is because the files must be played using "nginx-vod-module" which requires the AVC video format to be streamed.

How to reproduce:

% /root/ffmpeg  -y -t 00:00:50 -i "testinput.mkv" -filter_complex "[0:v]split=2[s0][s1];[s0]scale=-2:720[v0];[s1]scale=-2:360[v1]" -map "[v0]" -map "[v1]" -map 0:a -c:v h264_nvenc -b:v:0 1100k -b:v:1 600k -profile:v:0 main -profile:v:1 baseline -level:v:0 4 -level:v:1 3.1 -ac 2 -c:a aac -b:a 128k -af "aresample=async=1000:first_pts=0"  -f tee "[select=\'v:0,a\']testoutput.mp4|[select=\'v:1,a\']testoutput-360.mp4"

Thanks to Gyan (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/51844515/ffmpeg-produces-is-avc-false-with-h264-nvenc-tee-muxer) who helped me to solve this issue by adding:
-flags +global_header after the -c:v h264_nvenc prop.

Solved!.
