The Timestamp (1588305600) correspond at 2020:05:01 06:00:00. But when the file is played, the date is OK, but the time does not correspond to 06:00:00 but 21:11:21

Apparently the second argument is an offset added to the timestamp. Have you tried using the timecode arguments instead of using pts?

Thank’s for reply. Yes I try it and it works fine but with this argument (Timecode), it’s going back to 00:00:00:00 when you seek and this is exactly that I don’t want. My idea is to use the name of the file (it’s contains date and time) to calculate the timestamp and use it to print date and time on screen with pts, and in this case you can seek, but may be it’s not possible, my knowledge with all that concern PTS are very limited.

The fact that the date was good with my first command line encouraged me to think it was possible to do that.
