Could you explain a little more?
If your input file is a transport stream (read from
dvb) then it will (practically) always start with
"errors" (because partial and/or nonkey-frames are
sent to the decoder) but that neither makes the
decoding fail nor is there anything (that makes
sense) possible for you to avoid the errors.
Or do I misunderstand?
> ffmpeg -i INPUT -f mp4 -benchmark -y null
$ ffmpeg -i INPUT -f null -
will be (at least) a magnitude faster but as said
please explain your usecase.
