ok, it's 76 frames and 5 seconds. Lesson learned, don't trust the video 

Next question. I want to make a dark subtract for my videos of the night 
sky. I capture a few seconds of video with the cap on the lens. From 
this video I want to average 100 frames and extract the result as a PNG 
image, which will then be subtracted from the video of the night sky.
Do you think this is the correct command for extracting the average of 
the first 100 frames?

ffmpeg -i dark.mov -vf tmix=frames=100 -frames 1 dark.png
