Thank you, Harald. I knew that but your gentle reminder is welcome. It has helped me to better see 
the problem.

'-i'-before-'-ss' is not honoring '-copyts' and possibly '-muxdelay 0' so the output's PTSs do not 
match what '-ss' is asking for because '-ss' is citing input PTSs. Is that what you're 'saying'?
