Sorry, I don’t quite understand.  The screenshots from
the source are brighter than those from the transcode.
That’s why I think the transcode should be brighter.

The video I uploaded is the source - the bright one -
so if it looks darker to you than the bright png, maybe
I’m doing something wrong.
