That 5000000 bytes were used to compute the overall duration, 
and this was >= the maximum size for computing the overall 
duration, either specified by you or the default (which 
is 5000000).

The overall duration may be computed incorrectly.

Either ignore it or specify a larger -analyzeduration.

(It is absolutely possible that none of the above applies to 
the image2 demuxer, I just gave the general answer.)
