  1. So, I record various TV programs using my DVB-T2 receiver in .ts format. I remove unnecessary stuff using lossless editing programs such as Videoredo and Avidemux, keeping only the stuff I want and remux into .mp4 (a format supported by everything while also allowing importing to Premiere for further editing, if necessary. I know H.264 is bad for editing but that's not the point/problem here).

    Once I open pretty much any of these .mp4 videos with Premiere though (also tried Shotcut), they play faster or slower at times, frames are being repeated 2 and 3 times and I get audio/video sync problems. Checking the sequence settings (set by the videos) or the video properties seem to reveal what could be the issue but not what causes it: the reported framerates are random numbers like 30.05 or 17.5 fps (local broadcoasts are always 25.00 FPS) and “variable framerate detected”. The thing is, the original .ts recordings play fine in Premiere and they don't appear to have VFR. Neither MediaInfo nor Premiere say so, and again, even if they do have VFR, that doesn't cause the problems I've described. Also, please notice that if I trim snippets with the programs I've mentioned, but output as a new .ts files, those videos play fine in Premiere too. Videoredo dev insists their program is impossible to output VFR when I asked in their forums btw.

    Then I've been recommended to try Shutter Encoder. Remuxing the original recording to ProRes has no issues but remuxing to .mp4, once again, results in the same problems when imported to Premiere.
    I understand these programs use FFmpeg a lot so I've decided to try it on its own, with some pretty basic remux .ts to .mp4 commands such as:
    Code:
    ffmpeg -i input.ts -c copy output.mp4
    ffmpeg -y -i full-ts.ts -c:v copy full.mp4
    and sure enough, the output .mp4 files have the same issues when imported to Premiere. So, what’s going on here?
    Why does remuxing a .ts recording which plays perfectly fine on Premiere and seemingly have CFR (at least that's what Premiere and MediaInfo say, and again, even if it isn't CFR, it doesn't come with the problems present when Premiere says "VFR detected") to .mp4 leads to Premiere (and Shotcut) complaining about VFR and creates the issues I've mentioned?

    Is that a Premiere quirk misinterpreting CFR for VFR? A FFMpeg bug? An issue with my original recordings? (which play fine on Premiere though).
    Anyone knows what's going and how could I get a simple .ts ---> .mp4 remux/repackage (no re-encoding of course) without the issues I've mentioned?


    For what is worth, here are two MediaInfo sheets, first of an original .ts recording (which has no issues) then a trimmed snippet of the same recording remuxed in mp4 with Videoredo (which has issues).

  2. I do not see the info for the ts


    It should say: "Scan type, store method : Interleaved fields" for typical "interlace" or mbaff , but yours' says "separated fields."

    That suggests double the framerate, as the field rate... when you separate fields for 25fps interlaced you get 50fps indvidual fields

    Hi, thanks for your reply. I am not really following since I am not familiar with the terms "interleaved/separated fields" and "mbaff" (in any case the original .ts says the same and it plays fine on Premiere), so if you could elaborate and/or more importantly let me know how this could help me solve the issue I'd really appreciate it.

  4. oh I see you put them side by side in the 1st post


    I found some sample files with similar specs and they work ok in PP or shotcut for me when rewrapping with mp4box

    But it might be some other incompatibility in your specific recordings, or the way you cut them, but try mp4box first (or some gui for it) . First on an uncut file, then on a cut file.

    But it might be some other incompatibility in your specific recordings, or the way you cut them, but try mp4box first (or some gui for it) . First on an uncut file, then on a cut file.
    So, I've downloaded mp4box and tried it on two separate uncut .ts recordings. I've put each file (separate attempts of course) in "C:\Program Files\GPAC", renamed it as "input" and ran:
    HTML Code:
    mp4box -add input.ts output.mp4
    Both files produced broken/empty 1 kb outputs, here are the two logs:

    Then tried on a trimmed .ts recording (which as I've said, it plays fine on Premiere). This time I got an .mp4 file as output but it has the same issues when reporting in Premiere. Here's the log:

    C:\Program Files\GPAC>mp4box -add input.ts output.mp4

    What gives? Also, what's with that Osmo4/mp4client that comes with mp4box, hope it's not adware or something?

  6. Maybe you have packet errors in the recording, that's what the log suggests

    TS has error correction and other mechanisms to sync timing, but the filesize is typically 6-8% larger , but maybe that's your only option for those recordings

  7. Try
    ffmpeg -i input.ts -c copy -bsf:v h264_mp4toannexb output.mp4
