You can do this with AVIsynth if you happen to be on Windows.

Subject: [FFmpeg-user] Draw original timecode on the output file

I have to convert DV AVI file to mp4 file. The command I am using is:

ffmpeg -i input.avi -vf scale-480:-1 -c:v libx264 - crf 32 -c:a
libfdk_aac -ac 2 -b:a 96k -ar 44100 output.mp4

My task is to print the original timecode from the AVI file to the mp4
file so that anyone who play the file in some player to see it in
center bottom (if it's possible).

Can someone help me with that?

I've read something about drawtext but because I am new to ffmpeg I

For compiling ffmpeg I've used this tutorial:
