[FLVTool2-users] question about modifying frame rate metadata

Brooks --
     First of all, thanks...
       I was using just flvtool2 -P, I did not realize I needed to do -PU.
     However it didn't work!
     When I ran flvtool2 -PU -framerate:5 file.flv
     it changed the framerate all right, but flvtool2 calculated other things like keyframe data and the videodatarate tag and added these to the metadata.
     I thought I was able to change the videodatarate from 2000.12 to 400 and slow the file down but I can't seem to replicate this success.
    question: does flvtool2 always add keyframe data?
    question: anyone have any success with slowing a file down this way?
    question: if it cant be done this way, what can I do to reencode it to slow it down and preserve the audio data too?

Hi -- I have some FLV files that have an incorrect frame rate.
The frame rate is 20 but it should be 5.

Is it possible to inject new metadata into the FLV file to correct this?

you should be able to overwrite the metadata values without issue, 
although its unclear how that will impact the playback of the video.


Ahhh...imagining that irresistible "new car" smell?
