Pixel format is the same (yuv 420) but, encoder variant seems different:
Canon original:
Video: h264 (Constrained Baseline) (avc1 / 0x31637661), yuvj420p(pc,
smpte170m/bt709/bt709), 1280x720, 22763 kb/s, 29.97 fps, 29.97 tbr, 30k
tbn, 60k tbc (default)
Video: h264 (libx264) (avc1 / 0x31637661), vj420p(pc), 1280x720,
q=-1--1, 29.97 fps, 30k tbn, 29.97 tbc (default)

So the question is, if and how I can force ffmpeg to use a compatible
encoding variant.
