This means you are actually not splitting (because that can't easily be
done with actual MP4 containers), but remuxing. ffmpeg can't exactly
reconstruct the original container, as explained in my response in the
other thread.

As Carl Eugen worte: Always when describing such as issue, please
remember to show us the actual command line you used, and the command's
complete, uncut console output.
