Looks like your knowledge is very limited, incorrect and completely
full of nonsense.

showinfo filter shows video frame color metadata to output of console,
nothing less - nothing more. showinfo cant produce incorrect video, if
you ever bothered to read documentation you would know.

Next time be less so ignorant and do some research and do read
documentation and do your homework before coming here asking for

It clearly shows that everything is unknown in that showinfo filter
output on messages on console thus everybody can pick whatever they
want to display video.

Nobody is wrong. Everybody is correct. Your file is encoded so badly
that it should be immediately removed from existence.

Whats about users that come here these days?

They show no sign of caring for details or knowledge.

They just want shortcuts and prompt solutions.

And clearly shows no incentive to change that anytime soon.
