FFMPEG drops supposedly corrupt frames from original video

Postby t6nand » Thu Jul 13, 2017 10:52 am

I am using h264 for optimising MP4 for web. I have a video which has some supposedly corrupt frame(s) within it's initial 1-2 seconds.
On transcoding using :

Code: Select all
ffmpeg -i orig.mp4 -c:v libx264 -crf 25 -vf scale="-2:min(ih\,720)" -b:v 600K -g 90 -c:a libfdk_aac output.mp4

The output MP4 has these frames dropped out and I have my output with it's start about 1 to 2 seconds delayed from original video, thus resulting in overall less time duration in output video.

Moreover, most media players also skip these frames in playback (like quicktime player, etc). But VLC media player was able to play this video without skipping these frames.

Is there a way to not drop frames using ffmpeg? And if possible is it possible to identify and fix these frames in a video?

Note: I tried encoding same video using AWS Elastic transcoder which actually fixed these frames.
PS: Being a new user I can't post links with video and frame images hosted on internet. So kindly refer to stackoverflow question: 45073023
