I need to check a set of MOV files for broken timecode so I’ve been attempting to export the entire timecode track of an MOV file using FFMPEG.
I’ve attempted this:
ffmpeg -i [source] -map 0:d -c copy -f data data.txt
But it only outputs a small text file with just a couple of characters unrelated to timecode.
Then I tried:
ffmpeg -i [source] -map 0:d -c copy data.mov
and got back a timecode only mov file. Which is closer to what I am looking for.
I also tried:
ffprobe -print_format json -show_format -show_streams "input.mov">"output.json"
This showed me the starting timecode in TAG:timecode
I am looking for a means of outputting the timecode for every frame of video to a text file so that I can then scan it with a python script to look for timecode jumps.
