> 1024 looks correct. This method successfully changes the start, and the encoded audio plays, almost, 100% in sync. Its slightly cut off at the head, but only very slightly. However the downside of this method is that the audio now overruns the end of the picture further and is not trimmed from remaining samples I’m guessing. This results in a blank video frame being added to the tail of clip. ffprobe for ffmpeg_v3 attached

-t `ffprobe -v quiet -of default=nw=1:nk=1 -select_streams V -show_entries stream=duration SyncTest24p.mov`

into your commandline should do the trick.

imho this is a muxing bug in dealing with aac priming in many
situations, but making my case fell on deaf ears.
