In this message
you find a link to many DNG images which FFmpeg can't decode correctly. 
There is no error message, but the result is much too dark with low 

I did convert a RAW image from a Canon 6D to DNG with Adobe DNG 
Converter V12.4. FFmpeg is unable to decode this DNG image. See this 
message for details:
You can download the DNG image here (I will delete it from my webspace 
in a few days):

I did also try a RAW image from a Canon 5D-MK4 with the same negative 

A friend gave me a DNG image that was written by his Pentax K5 camera. 
Same negative result.

Summary: I did try DNG images from 4 different sources and in 4 of 4 
cases FFmpeg failed.
