Thanks Dave for the info.  Carl, I cannot post the sample since it s a proprietary asset.
What does start_time with a negative value represent?  Could the absolute value of the start_time parameter in the ffprobe
output be used as an offset from the TAG:timecode parameter to get the actual start timecode of the clip
