I was wondering why some newly encoded videos do not start at time
"00:00:00.000" but "00:00:00.066" and double-checked that with ffprobe.

The frame at .066 is actually a B-Frame.

I exported the first frame displayed in Avidemux as BMP and did the same with ffmpeg.
They are binary identical. So it is the first frame.

So I'm almost certain that the displayed time in Avidemux is wrong.

If I delete everything before the first frame with the B marker and delete key,
save that to another MP4 using the MP4v2 Muxer (video & audio copied) and
open it again the time is displayed as "00:00:00.050" where it was
"00:00:00.000" before saving and re-opening.

Avidemux 2.6.21 has the same problem.

Old Avidemux 2.5.6 lets me go back to the first frame and displays that as "P (02)"
whereas ffprobe (or ffplay with "showinfo" filter) say it's an I frame.

Is this already a known bug?
Can that be fixed easily?

Re: Avidemux 2.7.1 (Win64) Bug: Displayed Time and/or frame types is wrong
« Reply #1 on: November 30, 2018, 08:53:38 PM »
This has been explained numerous times. It is not a bug, it is by design. FFmpeg uses a signed value (int64_t) to store timestamps while Avidemux uses an unsigned value (uint64_t), so that PTS have to be delayed as DTS can't go negative if B-frames are present. If a container specifies that audio playback should be advanced, all video timestamps have to be delayed furthermore to account for that.

Some real bugs regarding calculation of video delay in mp4 and mpegts have been fixed since 2.7.1, you are far better off using the latest nightly.

Okay, thank you for your explaination.
