I'm trying to merge 21 video files of varying duration (from 54 seconds to nearly 2 hours, total disk size about 11G), but when saving the resulting file as MP4V2 file the following error is displayed:

Code: [Select]
Video does not have enough timing information. Are you copying from AVI?

File information for the 1st video is attached.

The MP4v2 muxer bails out if it encounters a video frame (just a single video frame) without timing info. Maybe another muxer (MP4, MKV) turns out to be more tolerant?

MP4 muxer fails to save ("the video was saved but incomplete", reported that issue already). Trying to merge into mkv, will report once done.

The MP4 muxer actually uses the bundled ffmpeg, this is entirely possible that ffmpeg chokes on the very same problem with missing PTS (timing info) and only lets you know about that in a different way. Have you checked whether every video from the 21 you are trying to merge exhibits the problem or just a single one (or a few)?

I'll check. Probably the smallest (0:00:54 one) video is the culprit. Anyway, merging into MKV completed without errors.
