[FFmpeg-user] ffmpeg -i reports a video of length 03:17.53, but splitting into frames at 2 fps only results in one frame

I am no expert but something is obviously messing up with the frame 
number (a bug in ffmpeg?)
So looking at your dump, it seems to me that the frames are produced 
correctly except that they all have the frame number 1.
A solution to your problem could be to drop the frame information by 
transcoding to rawvideo and then to images.

Something like that:

ffmpeg -i video.mpg -r 1 -s 640x480 -c:v rawvideo -pix_fmt yuv420p out.yuv
# ffplay  -f rawvideo -framerate 1 -s 640x480 -pixel_format yuv420p -i out.yuv
ffmpeg -f rawvideo -framerate 1 -s 640x480 -pixel_format yuv420p -i out.yuv 'output/frame_%06d.jpg'


or using a pipe to avoid the intermediate raw file.

ffmpeg -i video.mpg -r 1 -s 640x480 -f rawvideo -c:v rawvideo -pix_fmt 
yuv420p pipe: | ffmpeg -f rawvideo -framerate 1 -s 640x480 -pixel_format 
yuv420p -i pipe: output/frame%06d.jpg
