Hello Carl,
Thanks for your response.

This is the complete and unedited output from that exact command.

There are 3 parts in the output of ffprobe to a video file.
1. Audio stream.
2. Video stream
3. Format (which represents the container).
Every one of them has duration and bitrate.

In this case there is Streams, and Format.

In the part of the format in v5.1.4 the duration is 6.452311 and bitrate is
In v.6.1.1 the duration is 35393.442471 and bitrate is 58.  (Duration is
much longer, although the video is ~6.5 seconds long.)

the duration and the bitrate in the part of audio stream and video stream
remains the same in both versions.

Hope that clarifies the problem.

Thanks a lot.
