I'm researching to automate some process on rushes video files.

The timeline is black > sequence > black > sequence... I would like to extract the timecodes start/end of each sequence and send it to a RPA/DAM. I began to explore the ffmpeg blackdetect's filter but I don't find how to invert results or parse the blacks...

If someone could have some suggestions, it would be super cool :)

Note that the videos files have custom timecodes like 09:57:00:00 and the results of blackdetect couldn't work as it doesn't take the original tc and begin systematicaly from zero. So it's another question that I would be very grateful to have some help.

Thank you very much.
