[FFmpeg-user] Reading TimeCode Track using ffmpeg

As far as I know, ffmpeg does not support the specification of in and out points by frame count or timecode.

You can convert your timecode to a fractional number of seconds which is supported by the -ss options etc.

Yes, this may suffer rounding errors which can cause your edits to be out by a frame.

Yes, it would be nice if ffmpeg supported timecode or at least frame count (or if someone told us how to do it, if it does).
