#7806 new defect

Input seeking seems result in incorrect duration of output file when seeking value is small with -codec copy

Reported by: vincentkilua Owned by:

Version: git-master Keywords: seeking duration

Description

Summary of the bug:
I was trying to remove a couple of seconds from the beginning of the input file. However, the output seeking(i.e. -ss was placed after -i) with -codec copy was resulted in frozen frame for a few seconds at the beginning of the output file, therefore I attempted to use the input seeking(i.e. -ss was placed before -i) instead. The resulting output file was exhilarating that begin smoothly and accurately except the duration information of the output file was different from the actual value.

How to reproduce:

The above command was supposed to result in a video file with duration 00:01:00 as described in the prompt(time=00:00:59.99). However I got a file with duration 00:01:05 that contains the 00:01:00 long video instead.

It won't happen when I use a larger value(say 10, 15 seconds). I have also tried the same commands with some older releases, and resulted in identical outputs.

ffmpeg -ss 00:00:10 -i input.mp4 -t 00:01:00 -c copy output10.mp4
ffmpeg -ss 00:00:15 -i input.mp4 -t 00:01:00 -c copy output15.mp4

The broken image was the duration info of the two output files, as follow.
