Comment (by DanTheMan):

 Please see the sample "dv03-timecode.avi" provided for download via


 Mediainfo extracts the timecode of the first frame as "00:58:35:14".

 However, ffprobe does not, just try for yourself:

 ffprobe -show_streams  -show_format dv03-timecode.avi

 This seemingly contradicts ffprobe's man page which contends "AVI
 timecodes are available in format metadata".
