Thanks for your fast response.

I will try with with the git master next week,

I'm pretty new to FFmpeg but i developped an application which create theses video stream from images.

Every video are created with ffmpeg within a custom application, so they all have the same parameters,
They play very well in VLC.

Meanwhile, please find below the complete console output.

Please show us the complete, uncut console output.

How about a newer version instead of an older one (though I acknowledge that you could find a regression by going backwards)? git master HEAD is recommended on this list.

That does not suffice. From the docs:

  All files must have the same streams (same codecs, same time base,

  The duration of each file is used to adjust the timestamps of the
  next file: if the duration is incorrect (because it was computed
  using the bit-rate or because the file is truncated, for example), it
  can cause artifacts. The duration directive can be used to override
  the duration stored in each file.
