[FFmpeg-user] Remuxing Into "aivx" MOV

Starting from Stefano Sabatini’s remuxin.c, I’m trying to remux an XAVC video stream (AVC/H.264 High 4:2:2 Intra 10-bit) from a MXF file into a MOV file made to look like the output of FCPX’s own remuxing of the same source file (codec tag “aivx”). Specifically, using the ffprobe -show_data -show_streams command. I can see that there are still a couple of important differences between what I can get with FFMPEG and the file produced by FCPX (Final Cut Pro X 10.1). No matter what I try, it seems that the MOV FFMPEG “format” remangles those values after I have specifically set them. Namely, all for the video stream:

1) time_base: I’m setting 1/24000 and I’m getting 1/12288

2) extradata: here, I’m getting something mangled beyond recognition after explicitly setting the target metadata to the source metadata with this code:

	out_stream->codec->extradata = in_stream->codec->extradata;
	out_stream->codec->extradata_size = in_stream->codec->extradata_size;

The other values (avg_frame_rate, duration, duration_ts) all seem to be calculated from the time_base, so I will stick to those two for now. How to deterministically set those values for a AVC/H.264 video stream to be muxed into a MOV file with FFMPEG?



Here is the FFMPEG version I’m using on Mac OS X 10.9.2:
