Is there a reason for transcoding to mpeg4 and then splitting? If you transcode them as separate segments in the first place, I don’t think you will see this issue (codec copying and splitting mpeg4 might be the problem). Something like:

ffmpeg -ss ${start} -to ${end} -i ${inname} -vf scale=340:256,setsar=1:1 -q:v 1 -c:v mpeg4 ${output1}

and repeat for however many cuts you need to make.

P.S. It’s preferable to paste the command and output as text rather attach an image of them
