 Well, because it is 1920x1080, it is automatically promoted to BT.709 and
 limited range. But not in ffmpeg.
 So, use ffmpeg -i incorrect_color_h264.mp4 -c copy -colorspace bt709
 -color_primaries bt709 -color_trc bt709 out.mp4 to set all the stuff and
 then when you will do out.png it will be good.
