I'm trying to add a video and audio fade in and fade out to my video using the fade and afade filters. I'm using the following command:

ffmpeg -i trimmed.mp4 -vf 'fade=in:0:60,fade=out:2940:300' -af 'afade=in:st=0:d=1,afade=out:st=53:d=2' -c:a aac -c:v libx264 -crf 18 -preset veryfast fadeInOut.mp4

The resulting audio sound like TV static was overlayed. I've tried specifying audio quality by adding -b:a 128k, but that didn't help either. Any ideas what might be wrong?

Here's the output of ffmpeg -i if that's helpful:

    minor_version   : 512

    You removed the most important info, ffmpeg version.

  • What you use to play output audio?

  • @PaulB.Mahol Oh shoot good point, it might be my player's fault. I'm using VLC. I also just tested it with Windows's Photos app, and the same still happens. Apr 12 '19 at 2:51
  • I'm out of ideas, I can not reproduce this. Perhaps your input have edit lists? How it was created?
