I am trying to merge 5 parts of a continuous video using ffmpeg.

For some reason, the 1st part is encoded at 29.97 FPS, while all the others are at 30 FPS.

  • part #1 : 29.97 fps, 29.97 tbr, 19200 tbn, 38400 tbc
  • part #2 : 30 fps, 30 tbr, 15360 tbn, 60 tbc

So before the concat operation, I tried converting Part #1 to 30 FPS, two different ways :

Both operations passed and I was able to verify the new FPS just by doing ffmpeg -i output.mp4

However, after the concat operation I realised that the video is now shorter than the audio in Part #1, resulting in a short blackout at the end of the Part, while the audio continues uninterrupted.

Why is that, and how to fix it ?

  • You don't need to change framerate. Just make the tbn equal. ffmpeg -i 1.mp4 -c copy -video_track_timescale 15360 output.mp4 – Gyan May 27 at 4:10
  • Tried your suggestion. Concat with ffmpeg -f concat -safe 0 -i list.txt -codec copy output.mp4, I get the following message Non-monotonous DTS in output stream 0:1; previous: 660480, current: 660114; changing to 660481. This may result in incorrect timestamps in the output file. and there's still a blank at the end of the video stream of Part 1. – mach128x May 27 at 15:44
