Probably. But I went and used it as is and just picked the data out of 
the framecrc data. It didn't tell me anything useful since there was so 
much information. I would have to process through some other tools to 
get anything out of it.

These leak, though the leak is barely noticeable since they finish so 

ffmpeg -i file.mp4 -vcodec copy -acodec copy out.mp4
ffmpeg -i file.mp4 -vcodec copy -an out.mp4
