 Whilst many formats support adding timecode with the -timecode feature
 currently only the GXF format supports presenting this timecode in the
 metadata, with mpeg being read using the new ffprobe feature from commit

 For consistency it would be good if all formats for which it is valid to
 present a -timecode value to the muxer allowed extracting that timecode in
 the demuxer.

 Ideally both reading and writing of timecode should be extended to all
 those formats that support it, which would include mxf and mov.

 Given that "burnt in" timecode can now be added to any format using the
 drawtext filter. This would complete ffmpeg's capabilities in this area.
