>> tpad=start_duration works to delay the start of one video, but now I need to fix the audio sync. For example this command:
>> ffmpeg -i TrailDown.mp4 -i TrailUp.mp4 -filter_complex "[0]tpad=start_duration=2.5[a];[a][1]hstack" -vcodec libx264 Coyote2Up.mp4

>> Only the left half (TrailDown) camera has a microphone, and it’s apparent that the audio sync is off by the same 2.5 seconds that I’ve delayed its video. You can hear the female coyote (with the stumpy tail) scratching the ground 2.5 seconds before she actually does it.
