Generally, it’s a bad idea to store data on SD or micro SD cards for any substantial period of time. If you’re a hobbyist, traveling, and plan to transfer to a hard drive when you get home, that’s fine. But if you’re a traveling media specialist, you want to get your data off of SD/micro SD as soon as possible, for a number of reasons; Those cards are ...

I strongly advice against microSD cards because they will get lost. They're just too tiny. There are external SSDs which weigh not much, 50g maybe 100g, I think this is not much weight. Of course you need a way to attach the drive to the camcorder or rig, adding a bit more weight. When filming hand-held, the additional weight and a different center of weight ...

I just went through a very similar use-case working with TS files. MoritzLost has the key point but as ffmpeg options can be quite difficult to sort out when you are first getting started, here is a more detailed answer. Short Answer For a single input mp4 file and single input SRT file, we can keep all streams from both files and merge them into a new mp4 ...

If I understand you correctly, then most of the restoration goals will be impossible to be reached. While my knowledge of existing videos tools is not extensive, I am still pretty sure such a software does not exist. As a software developer I have a good grasp of what is impossible and what is possible and what effort you need to do that. When details are ...

I see no need to worry about those meta data or why you should remove them. Pantry and Ingredients tags refer to asset tracking. In fact most of this data are production related and not relevant in any way for a consumer. The rest tells you about technical features, like the resolution or video codec. A watermark is something different. If you want to ...

Edit lists is a feature, that allows you to edit videos without re-encoding. For example, you want to remove a scene, make your edit points which are written into the container file. A video player reads those instructions and just such parts of the video. However, not many players seem to support that feature, nor does Instagram, so simply don't use it. I ...

You have control over this. If you use the correct settings, you will work on the original file. When you setup a project you can define what Ingest Settings to use during import. Those settings can also be changed later. In your case you probably want to use Copy. If you drag and drop a video from the Media Browser panel to the Project panel the video will ...

The metadata from an input file in any ffmpeg operation is used to interpret and handle the media data in that file. That metadata is not naively copied over, wholesale or piecemeal*. FFmpeg will always generate new metadata based on the specific set of media data received when generating the output. Since the output of concat operation is one file, it will ...

Try TMPG Smart Renderer https://tmpgenc.pegasys-inc.com/en/product/tmsr5.html If anything is recoverable, this tool should work. If it can't pull anything from the file, I don't know of any other tool that would. The trial version should work fine for you to get what you need.

May you try ffmpeg -y -i input.mp4 -ss 00:07:35 -to 00:14:01 -c copy output.mp4

In principle, this is possible, and is usually called "smart" encoding or rendering in the video editors / apps that offer this facility, typically in limited circumstances. FFmpeg does not have support for it. The main complication is that the parameters of the encoded portion has to match the coding parameters of the existing stream. That is ...

The mdat box in a MP4 contains the media payload but it is freeform. It is as good as gibberish on its own. The moov box identifies how many tracks there are, which codecs and their parameters those tracks contain, which portions of the data in the mdat correspond to which tracks, what their timestamps are..etc. What MP4 repair utilities do, is use the track ...
